Marijuana farms are burning in California wildfires

Marijuana farms are burning in California wildfires

(CNN Money) -- Deadly wildfires in Northern California are burning up marijuana farms in the so-called Emerald Triangle.

Blazes have destroyed a number of farms in Mendocino County right before legal recreational sales begin in California.

"Nobody right now has insurance," said Nikki Lastreto, secretary of the Mendocino Cannabis Industry Association.

Josh Drayton, a spokesman for the California Cannabis Industry Association, said it's too early to tell just how many of the state's estimated 10,000 to 15,000 marijuana farms have burned down.

That overlaps with some of the cannabis producing Emerald Triangle, which includes Mendocino but also Trinity and Humboldt counties, which are largely spared from the fires.
