While USGBC does not take a position on the legalization of marijuana, it recognizes that the cannabis industry is one of the nation's most energy intensive industries and can often demand the use of 24-hour indoor lighting, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning at grow sites.

At present, legalized indoor marijuana-growing operations account for 1 percent of total electricity use in the U.S. which equates to a production of 15 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually. As the number of states that legalize recreational marijuana continues to grow and without the use of efficient equipment, these facilities will be responsible for vastly increasing greenhouse gas emissions and an intensifying demand on the power grid.
