With record wildfires on the West Coast causing significant set backs to outdoor growth, many harvesters are facing challenges with their crops.  These challenges range from the health and safety of employees, loss of light to the plant from smoke,  potential toxins in the plants, and so much more.   Major concerns about what the smoke contains, including heavy metals or other toxins can cause buds to get tainted by airborne toxins like pesticides, ash,  fire retardant, building materials, and more. When these toxins enter the plant and the plant is sent to testing, testing results are showing arsenic making the plant unusable and potentially harmful for consumers.  With so many growers facing these problems many are seeking out other alternatives such as indoor grow operations, opening huge opportunities for technology, HVAC systems, and more.  Watch as Luis and Harry chat about the opportunities the fires are causing.
