In response to the tragic incident in the UK where at least 80 people lost their lives, I have produced a free video highlighting what we can learn from this and applied it to similar incidents around the world. This affects all in the industry around the world and we in the profession must do all we can to prevent a recurrence.

Looking for Help with BHO Class
I have been contacted by Nick Hughes at the Eastern Tennessee Drug Task force. He is seeking some training for local Law and Fire/EMS folks as they are seeing an increase in Butane Hash Oil incidents as well as some significant grow operations . I don’t think MJ is legal at all in Tennessee so this is more about clandestine and illegal operations and the related responses. If anyone out there has some training materials or might be interested in a trip to Tennessee to share Colorado’s experience, please let me know and I will send your contact info onto Nick. Thanks Bob
