Southern Oregon wildfires this week have plowed through small towns, leveled hundreds of homes and businesses, and now threatens part of the state’s prized – and lucrative – outdoor cannabis crop. Statewide, an estimated 20 percent of state-licensed marijuana businesses face some level of evacuation, according to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission. The agency said 73 marijuana producers, most of them outdoor farms, have been ordered to evacuate. Many of those operations are in southern Oregon, a region synonymous with outdoor cannabis cultivation.
