Health Risks Associated with Indoor Marijuana Grow Operations from National DEC on Vimeo.

The Colorado Drug Investigators Association (CDIA) commissioned a study of 30 indoor marijuana grow operations to determine the health risks to drug enforcement officers, emergency responders, and children who are exposed to these environments. A team of industrial hygienists from National Jewish Health were subcontracted to perform the study during law enforcement investigations of these facilities.

Learning Objectives:
1. List exposures to children, first responders, and professionals completing work in an indoor marijuana grow operation (MGO).
2. Describe the potential adverse health effects associated with the exposures to indoor MGOs.
3. Name the appropriate personal protective equipment to utilize in an indoor MGO.
