Pesticide Pocket Guide

A Pocket Guide to Pesticides Found in Illegal Cannabis Grow Operations

The Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR) has created a pocket guide to provide law enforcement and first responders a simple guide to identify potentially harmful pesticides commonly found at illegal cannabis cultivation sites. The guide was developed through input from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the California Department of Justice, and the California State Sheriffs’ Association.
