How would you classify an indoor (cannabis) plant grow room. Drywall & concrete. Plants are well watered in pots, sitting on palates covered in congregated metal. Lights are securely mounted with wire.

Plants are packed in there tight and lights are high intensity grow lights. 1000 sqft rooms.

They do not do extraction, so no flammable chemicals. The dry room would for sure be an Extra Hazard. As the owner said, they are classified as agriculture and how would you look at it if they were tomato plants. 

I've researched this extensively and found no guidance. Also, there's no guidance from AHJ.

Would you say Class A Ordinary hazard or Extra hazard?

Thank you for your input!
