More than a dozen wildfires are raging across Northern California, collectively burning through over 100,000 acres. The fires not only threaten the state’s famous wine grapes in Napa and Sonoma — but also its marijuana crops. California produces over half of the marijuana consumed in the US. The state’s legal cannabis sales totaled approximately $2 billion in 2016. Compared to wineries, it can be harder for marijuana farmers to obtain crop or fire insurance. It’s too soon to tell whether California’s 2017 wildfire season will be worse than in 2015, when over 8 million acres of total land burned. Although the number of fires in California has decreased in the past decade, more land has been charred due to vulnerability from the ongoing drought.
