September/October issue of NFPA Journal® looks at fire and life safety issues in the booming commercial marijuana industry and the lessons learned from the state of Colorado

In the cover story, “Growing Pains,” Associate Editor Jesse Roman explores the fast-paced commercialization history of marijuana, chronicling Colorado’s transition to medical marijuana legalization and authorized recreational use in just three short years. Growers, inspectors, fire officials, and other stakeholders weigh in on the different hazards that Colorado encountered along the way and that, in some cases, remain unresolved as other states seek to legalize pot later this fall.
