The North Pacific High has nothing to do with cannabis. But it has plenty to do with lots of living creatures, movable and not.
The weather system shows up from time to time, alternately stressing and helping creatures in different parts of the west. The North Pacific High is getting more variable with climate change, though.

Bryan Black shares the details in this interview.
