How People who Smoke or Vape Cannabis Transport the Chemical Residue into Clean Spaces

A recent research project led by Dr. Amirashkan Askari at the University of Toronto explored whether people smoking or vaping cannabis can transport chemical residue into clean areas. The researchers found that chemicals from both smoking and vaping cannabis can be transported to surfaces in clean areas. This means that people who do not use cannabis could still be at risk of exposure to its chemicals in spaces where others have smoked or vaped cannabis earlier.
