Several deaths being blamed on portable generators at rural cannabis farms in Mendocino County. Five deaths, four men, and possibly a fifth, blamed on carbon monoxide poisoning over the last five years. The Press Democrat reports the deaths involved small, gas-fueled generators which are mostly used to power music or charge cellphones. They were found in temporary greenhouses where the men were employed and slept on occasion. The newspaper reports there’s been no regulations on work for cannabis workers for years, but now state officials are drafting regulations since marijuana was legalized. The latest death was in Covelo just a couple weeks ago. The same happening with others going back to 2014.
