Legal Cannabis Adds Over $22.5 Million To Shasta County’s Agriculture Numbers

Agriculture in Shasta County features a very notable cash crop that rivals many basics for profit potential. County Agriculture Commissioner Rick Gorrola made a presentation on last year’s farm report during Tuesday’s supervisors meeting. He said food products yielded a little more than $89 Million, timber brought in $14 Million and cannabis grown legally within the city limits of Redding and Shasta Lake grossed $22.5 Million.
