Mendocino County Votes to Ban Genetically-Modified Foods
Wed Mar 3 2004
No Scary Food!
3/2/04: Voters in California's Mendocino County voted to pass Measure H, a county-wide measure to ban the "propagation, cultivation, raising and growing of genetically modified organisms in Mendocino County." Measure H passed, in spite of enormous financial expenditures by CropLife America in an attempt to defeat it. Washington DC based CropLife America represents biotech giants such as Monsanto, Bayer, Dupont, Dow Chemical and others. Mendocino County is now the first county in the nation to ban the growing of genetically altered crops and animals. Check out the Biotech IMC.
