European Commission to criminalize nearly all seeds and plants not registered with government

(NaturalNews) A new law proposed by the European Commission would make it illegal to "grow, reproduce or trade" any vegetable seeds that have not been "tested, approved and accepted" by a new EU bureaucracy named the "EU Plant Variety Agency."

It's called the Plant Reproductive Material Law, and it attempts to put the government in charge of virtually all plants and seeds. Home gardeners who grow their own plants from non-regulated seeds would be considered criminals under this law.

I wonder just how they decide which seeds are acceptable and which ones aren't.

Further, how the hell are the Seed Police going to know, when they come to inspect your garden, whether your plants come from approved or non-approved seeds? "Hmmm, that tomato doesn't look right; let's pluck one of those purty tomatoes over there and do DNA testing on it! For which you, farmgirl, will receive a bill!"

Hey, will this necessitate searching of gardeners' homes from top to bottom in the hunt for...vegetable seed?
