Washington County Bans Growing of GMOs
Nov 12, 2012
While some anti-GMO legislation like Prop 37 was shot down through corporation-funded projects and deceptive campaign tactics, one county in Washington state was massively successful in establishing a landmark ruling against Monsanto and GMO crops as a whole.
The concerned citizens of San Juan County were able to pass what is known as Initiative Measure No. 2012-4, whichactually bans the growth of genetically modified organisms within the county.
And it doesn’t just affect traditional GMO crops.
