The Daily Caller has released a new documentary detailing the struggle of northern Californians combatting large, local illegal marijuana harvesting operations run by drug cartels.
“We’re ready to move. We’re leaving everything, just to get away” from the dangers that come with unchecked illegal marijuana cultivation by cartel operatives in the region, that longtime resident told the Daily Caller. “No one is doing anything,” she continued.
California voted to legalize recreational marijuana in 2016.
