Let's void ALL Monsanto's patents and put them back to peddling plastic grass and pet analgesics! Ban one-shot seeds, genetic patents, and any and all litigation over pollen spread!

USAs lawmakers must not be allowed, nor think they can, after the 6 months leave Monsanto protected from the law. You all have about 4 months left to disavow them of this thinking ... and save the world.

'.....weeds quickly developed resistance to it, forcing farmers to apply ever-larger doses and resort to older, more toxic herbicides to combat resistant weeds. And while the company has tried hard to leave behind its past as a purveyor of toxic chemicals and rebrand itself as a technology company, those toxic chemicals remain central to its growth and profitability, as its latest quarterly profit report shows.'

Thanks for all this great info, Roseann! I've signed so many petitions and sent many letters against Monsanto, and will continue to. We must also continue to spread the word so others are informed.

I agree Lois. Now Washington State has to galvanize against Monsanto's misinformation campaign that labeling will raise food prices. It will NOT. And even if it did (which it does NOT,) the healthcare bills of GMO-generated cancerous tumors, infertility, and organ damage, still isn't worth the price of great health. California fell for it, I sure hope Washington residents see through the GMO-bullpuckey.
