Here’s another set of regulations that your cannabis business needs to pay attention to.
The National Fire Protection Association develops the safety codes and standards that most cities and towns use in their own fire codes. An NFPA committee has drafted a proposed marijuana chapter for its Fire Code. If the chapter passes an NFPA vote this month, it will be published on January 16, 2017, and will be in the 2018 edition of the NFPA Fire Code.
This means that your city or town will likely add regulations specific to marijuana businesses to its fire code. And you will need to comply.
