Is it OK with you for a business to discharge
stinky chemicals and gases
from Marijuana growing and processing
facilities into Rio Vista air?
Have you driven, walked or jogged
around Stan Simi Drive in Rio Vista's Business Park lately?
We each take 20,000 breaths a day and every breath matters
Do you smell an odd odor around the Rio Vista Business Park?
Its really hard to miss somedays, especially early in the morning
when the air is still - it just hangs in the air.
Even if you like the odor, is it safe to breath?
If you don't smell it, it may be that you are nose-blind to the odor
like the long term cigarette smoker who doesn't know they smell of tobacco to others.
If a person can smell something, chemicals are present, likely in a gaseous state.
Most airborne chemicals are invisible.
What exactly are the chemicals and gases we are smelling?
Why does it smell like the business park is a skunk farm?
Kind of hard to miss, isn't it?
