DENVER, CO (KDVR) – One man is using an unconventional method to sniff out illegal marijuana growing operations. Ben Siller is a certified odor observer. His job is to check out odor complaints the city of Denver receives.

Since medical marijuana became legal in the state he has gotten a new duty. The city calls Siller to investigate when it gets several pot odor complaints at the same time.

Now that anyone who buys recreational marijuana can just fire it up, the complaints for the nasal ranger to investigate may increase dramatically.
