I would want some pot if I lived there ! Sounds like about 50,000 people could use a Double shot of Whiskey.
One dispensary I know of is in the "mandatory evac" zone.
There is another med dispensary that is further south in Santa Rosa, Organicann, business as usual (except for the smoke in the sky).
There is at least one dispensary in Sebastopol, still open.
The fire probably burned a dispensary in Napa. That town got hit hard.
There's boatloads of supply. Harvests in Humboldt were un-interrupted.
The fire happened right during the harvest in Mendocino. I'm reading there may be some tragic losses of a small number of grow-people there.
Most of Mendo is not burning/burnt, knock on wood.
Cell phone service is totally fvcked up in the area. Makes it hard to get info but a lot of the missing people are turning up living once they can get to a phone.
