A week-long investigation by U.S. Forest Service Special Agents, Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Narcotics Unit, and Fire Investigators revealed that the origin of the La Brea fire is the result of a marijuana drug trafficking operation. Specifically, officials believe the fire started from flames or sparks from a campfire used for cooking.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Narcotics Unit has confirmed that the camp at the origin of the fire was an illegal marijuana operation believed to be headed by a Mexican National drug organization.

So, how’s that PROHIBITION working out for you? Not too good.

Here in Eureka, California we have had many housefires caused by faulty electrical lighting systems at indoor grows. The lights used to grow the hemp are often installed by people that have no idea about safety AND THEY ARE OFTEN STONED.

Public safety is endangered by the idiot LAWS that make grass farming profitable. We could have regulation of the industry with OSHA safety inspections.
