    It is estimated that 2-3 major wildfires are caused in California every year because of Mexican drug cartel marijuana farms. These same cartels dig massive tunnels beneath the deserts of Mexico and California, doing wide spread damage to the desert ecosystem. They also create roads across the desert with little regard for the animals they kill in the process.
