The Dank Dirt: Lessons from early regulated markets
Local jurisdiction determines the “time, place, and manner” of cannabis cultivation operations. Permitting, zoning and other decisions have significant energy and carbon emissions impacts and ramifications on local communities.
Public and private sector leaders speak from their experience across a range of issues, from strategies for controlling odors and ensuring air quality to code requirements to tax concepts for offsetting carbon emissions.

This conversation was filmed at the Resource Innovation Institute (RII) Indoor Agriculture Energy Solutions conference, which brought state regulators together with light, plant, HVAC, green house, water, vertical farming experts and cannabis cultivators to talk energy and cultivation best practices. The hope is that when regulators get to learn from experts and the farmers they regulate, they will create sensible agriculture regulatory policy. Farmers (indoor, greenhouse and outdoor), on their part, will hopefully move towards ever increasing energy efficiency and reduced carbon footprints.
