CBC News Insurance cancelled for marijuana co-op (7 months prior to fires)
Recent fires in Northern California have caused massive damage to marijuana farms. But because marijuana growing is illegal under federal law, no insurance company will insure these businesses. Just at the point when the potential market was to expand due to changes in California law--as well as it being harvest season--tragic fires have wiped away some farmers' crops and homes. Even plants housed in greenhouses that have survived fires may be contaminated by smoke.
