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.
