Smoking weed is the newest worry for California firefighters as the state’s biggest wildfire races toward the nation’s biggest marijuana-producing region.

The wildfire is headed for Post Mountain and Trinity Pines, two small communities northwest of Sacramento that lie in the heart of cannabis country.

And many of the locals — up to 1,000 — are refusing to evacuate because they want to protect their pot.

Law enforcement officials went knocking on doors, but can’t make anybody go, Trinity County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Nate Trujillo told the AP.

It’s mainly growers,” Trujillo said. “And a lot of them, they don’t want to leave because that is their livelihood.

Trinity Pines alone has as many as 40 legal farms and 10 times more in illegal patches, sources told the outlet. Each farm’s crops are worth $500,000 or more — and harvest time is only days or weeks away.

There [are] millions of dollars, millions and millions of dollars of marijuana out there,” the sheriff said. “Some of those plants are 16 feet tall, and they are all in the budding stages of growth right now.

All across the state, the dry, sizzling weather threatens to ignite more wildfires — and make the job of fatigued firefighters just that much tougher.

Same thing in Oregon as shown in the below video:

Meteorologists are predicting highs to hit 106 or 107 degrees by the early part of the week.

Facing the possibility of power lines down by high winds — or sparking a fire, Pacific Gas & Electric told nearly 100,000 customers that they could lose service if conditions got any worse Sunday or Monday.

The utility’s equipment sparked a 2018 fire two years ago that killed 85 in the town of Paradise. You remember?

In the meantime, California fires have already attacked and burned down wineries in Napa Valley… And we can’t tell when those infernoes are going to stop. More fire news on AP News, NY Post, Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle.

  1. Pfffft, Pot farms is what these morons are worried about.

    Lefties ruined that state. It was great in the late 50s, and early 60s. Then it turned to crap around 67-69′.
