California marijuana growers north of San Francisco were facing mandatory evacuation orders as well as potentially tens of millions of dollars in crop damage and loss amid widespread wildfires in the region.

The California Growers Association holds a regional check-in call every Monday morning, and today, six of their 18 regional leaders were under evacuation orders or helping neighbors who were.

Pearson stated he was staying with employees on the Glen Ellen property who refused to leave. SPARC's Glen Ellen facility was preparing to harvest its annual outdoor crop Tuesday.

Major Santa Rosa-based cannabis manufacturer CannaCraft has closed its 110-employee business today, and told employees to stay home. CannaCraft spokesperson Kial Long said employees are open to use CannaCraft's headquarters south of the Santa Rosa evacuation zone as an evacuation center.

Long said she's received no reports from the numerous Sonoma County cultivators with whom CannaCraft works. "I know of a lot of cultivation sites in the line of this fire."

Regional dispensaries like Organicann reported being closed for the day, or are not answering their phones during business hours.

Former Sebastopol mayor and former director of the Peace in Medicine dispensary in Sebastopol, Robert Jacob, reported on Facebook this morning that he feared his house was gone.

This could be punishment.

Genesis 1:29 Then God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you; but smoketh not the grass of the Earth, lest it giveth you ideas."

Of course, we are all sinners: God forbids us to eat meat and dairy together, so every cheeseburger you eat is an affront to God. Also, no bacon. So if you eat a bacon cheeseburger, that's like double daring God to kill you.
