Growing at Home: Health and Safety Concerns for Personal Cannabis Cultivation
Personal cultivation as described by the proposed Cannabis Act (2017) will permit adults to cultivate up to four cannabis plants per household. However, indoor cultivation and processing of cannabis may also introduce or exacerbate certain environmental health risks in the home.
Although this information may be of relevance to the public at large, the evidence presented here has been synthesized and organized for policy- and decision-makers, environmental and medical health officers, and other public health professionals. This review thus serves as a launching point for considering both wide-scale and regionally oriented preventive actions to mitigate the environmental health risks that may arise from growing at home.
