Fundraiser for burned marijuana farms shut down

10/25/17–The wildfires scorching Northern California have burned down at least 34 marijuana farms, just as the state prepares to launch a legal recreational marijuana industry. An attempt to crowdfund money online for farmers in Sonoma and Mendocino counties has been shut down by payment provider WePay. Now affected growers will have to find other ways to cover their losses. WePay did point to a potential workaround for future fundraisers.
