Recreational Cannabis: An Emerging Industry with Complex Environmental Challenges
Cannabis and hemp production is spreading rapidly throughout the country and vertically integrated companies are emerging with broad cultivation, manufacturing, and distribution networks. The industry is a unique mixture of agricultural, industrial, and commercial activities which are accompanied by novel environmental challenges as well, including: odor & air quality management, wastewater handling and disposal, solid waste disposal, and high energy consumption.
