Fire On The Mountain: The Fight For West Coast Cannabis Growers
As if 2020 hasn’t piled on enough, California and Oregon have been ravaged by wildfires for the last two months. These fires spreading out across the West Coast have left at least 40 people dead, burned more than 5 million acres, and leveled more than 7,000 buildings. Experts have determined that these are the worst fires the region has seen in 18 years. While there has been disagreement as to the severity of the fires – some linking their prevalence and intensity to climate change, and others, like President Donald Trump, blaming poor forest management – one thing we can all agree on is the horror of this widespread devastation.
