What exactly were those facilities doing? I have worked in quite a few and never seen anything remotely hazardous. I think there are some extraction processes that may be more hazardous but they are very different from a typical "grow" and I dont see why those wouldnt already be covered by the 500 articles. If not seems like they should just tweak the 500 articles.Those can be very dangerous, with serious fire and safety hazards. The process uses a lot of flammables. There were a number of fire fighters seriously injured in LA from the results of a fire in one of these facilities a couple of years ago. . For the fire fighters, it is like approaching a mini-refinery in a commercial building.
Proper requirements enforcement may have prevented that incident, and that was one of the triggering reasons for the proposed new article.
