This may be the REAL reason we’re seeing those lethal wildfires. Will California do anything about it?
As authorities look into the devastation caused by the wildfires in California, patterns are starting to emerge.
These wildfires were already ‘suspect’.
For one thing, they were happening far earlier in the year than wildfires normally would occur. And they’re being called ‘unprecedented’ in size and destruction.
For another thing, they kept finding authorized Marijuana growers among the burned-out victims. Again and again.
Law enforcement — including DHs — and top brass among the legal growers all noticed that their industry was being hard-hit. It stopped looking like a coincidence.
The damage is looking like this:

Forty or so are dead. And almost a hundred are still missing.
People want answers. What caused this?
The answer might be — Mexican Cartels.
The New York Times reported yesterday that tens of thousands of marijuana growers live in this area, the vast majority of whom have no insurance. Furthermore, since marijuana remains an illegal drug under the Controlled Substances Act, the industry still uses cash. —GotNews
‘Tens of Thousands’ of growers.
We aren’t surprised. We remember this article from when illegal pot growers were impacting farming and water supply questions in California.
Cartels have both the means AND the motive. Wipe out the competition — growers, legal and otherwise — and you dry up supply. Demand will drive the costs up. And just like that, the cartels make more money.
And all it would cost them is a can of gas and a couple of matches.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa’s A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa’s A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
