California law says they’re legal, but existing Federal law prohibits insuring marijuana farms burning in California wildfires throughout the state. It’s a particularly challenging situation for the nearly 15,000 marijuana farms in California.

Or enhance it? Personally, I believe the right music makes me many times more productive.
