SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — The numerous wildfires burning across north-central Washington have so far not damaged any businesses growing marijuana for recreational use. But some places growing medical marijuana have been damaged.
Mikhail Carpenter of the state Liquor Control Board said Thursday that no licensed recreational pot growers have reported fire damage, so the already-short supply of recreational marijuana is not hurt by the wildfires.
But The Seattle Times reported Thursday that a medical marijuana grower in Douglas County lost some plants to the flames on July 10.
The newspaper says marijuana producers have struggled to keep their businesses afloat amid the wildfires.
