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.
