Residents Complain of Smell of Growing Pot Filling the Air in Denver

Now that marijuana is legal in Colorado, the pot-growing industry has exploded in Denver's industrial areas. Consequently the smell of the growing pot is now filling Denver's air, as the indoor pot farms bring an acrid, skunky smell to the city and draw complaints from residents.

Certainly there are regulations that govern how much odor businesses may emit into the community, but the dank smell of pot growing is something quite new for Denverites. It is a smell quite different from that of a bakery or any of the other usual smells businesses might emit in a bustling city.

City authorities report that this year some 30 percent of the complaints (external - login to view) about industrial odors came because of the indoor pot-growing facilities that have sprung up in the Mile High City.

USA Today reported that tests of air quality in Denver do not seem to indicate any violation of the city's clean air ordinances. Perhaps the large number of complaints has come because residents aren't used to the new smell in the air, but some residents are quite insistent that the odor is hurting their quality of life.

I prefer pot smoke over cigarette smoke. I prefer the smell of green growing cannabis to vehicle exhaust.

Man will always find something to moan about. Man is not happy unless he is miserable. Man is an oxymoron...

These guys do know that it is called a weed for a feason right? 10 years from ditch weed will be better that the hydro stuff of today. Besides with that plant the hemp variety is the money maker. Guess TPTB slipped that one past the always alert general public.

What does a skunk say when he comes across a patch named after him? Mom?

I doubt you would like the cat piss smell of African sativas. Great defense to keep grazers away. Smell like a skunk or smell like a gazelle eating cat.

So there is no car exhaust in CO? Or is it pot growing + car exhaust in CO?


Yes, pot smoke is not as obnoxious as tobacco.

Fresh bud is one of my favourite smells. Better than most flowers. Smoked: not so much, but still better than cigarettes or gasoline. Anybody been near a canning factory or a farm field that has been freshly spread with manure? No comparison. Like Twila said, some people just like to complain.

Plenty of weed smells like petrochems. Keep trying.

But vehicle exhaust exists there in same quantities so pot smell is an addition to the air.

There are only some areas of the city you can process hogs (another smelly facility). Perhaps pot grow ops should not be in residential areas.

I can't stand the smell of fried cabbage. Should cabbage be cooked outside of residential areas?

. . . or you forget to care or check on them. WTF did I do with that hooka pipe, the 6 hoser one that could hold an oz in the bowl. Little upgrade, either have a electronic glow-plug near the base or one at the top so when you put the cap on the pipe will stay lit because the cap is airtight and air is pumped into the chamber at an acceptable rate and the smoke is gently blown out the hose end and the smoke is almost cold. . . . . or so I read. The real kind for a joint is a test-tube and an aquarium pump and some rubber hose. The smoke is still cool.
