    If the news article is correct that the new ordinance sets out a
    "potential $2,000 fine for anyone found guilty of polluting the atmosphere with high concentrations of cannabis." then it seems this new-fangled device is utterly useless for this purpose.

      police priorities, or was this a legislative act by the Denver City Council?

      Either way, this is a very expensive route to take to address what is probably a non-problem, or not much of a problem.  

      Those devices are not cheap and the users must be trained in their competent use.   Usually, the primary market for Nasal Rangers would be industry and air pollution control agency customers.   I've never heard of a police department using these devices before.
