inducing VOCs? According to William Vizuete, one of the nation’s leading experts on terpene pollution—also hired by Farrar to consult—that’s not likely. Vizuete testified cannabis terpenes would add only five tons to the 39,042 tons of naturally occurring terpenes currently “biogenically” generated from such plants as lemon and pine trees. As for long-term health consequences of the chemical soup used to control odors, another expert hired by Farrar, Nathan Eady, noted it was widely used by hospitals, which injected it in the HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) systems. Supervisors Adam and Joan Hartmann remained alive to the potential health issues involved, though Adam suggested that was in the neighborhood of “infinitesimal.” Hartmann expressed solace that Farrar’s odor-control system would be tested by an independent subcontractor at least four times in the first year of operation. Summing up the supervisors’ sentiments, Adam addressed Farrar directly. “You’re the platinum standard now,” he stated. “If you turn it into a problem, n this is going to be a wreck.”

Right-wing activist group Judicial Watch has filed a lawsuit over Senate Bill 826, which mandates that California corporations include women on their boards of directors. Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, who cowrote the bill, said while the lawsuit is disappointing, the bill has generated some good news: “Just last month, the last allmale board of the S&P 500 added a woman to its ranks, showing that diversity is within our grasp and that women are highly qualified and eager to step up.”

PEOPLE Criminal defense attorney Bill Duval died last week after a three-year battle with leukemia. Among courthouse circles, Duval was well-known, well-respected, and well-liked, having served first as a public defender from 1971 to 1978 and then as a private criminal defense attorney. Duval operated out of offices in La Arcada building and served on the Downtown Organization board for more than 20 years. n
