Supporters of the bill point to the fact that over 80 percent of food in US grocery stores contain genetically modified ingredients yet have no indication directly on the product. Those in opposition, such as the bio-tech giant Monsanto, claim labeling would harm them and local economies financially and would put a stigma on their products that they claim are safe.

Mandates suck, but this one I can definitely tolerate.

Next we can outlaw ALL Gen-mod'd food altogether and keep it from ever crossing the Oregon border. If they control the market we're going to speak out in other ways. If they quiet the legislation, we'll take to the streets. If they take away the streets we will be in their heads. Then the only way to silence us if Off With Their Heads.
