Sonoma County Passes Ban on GMO Crops
Voters in Sonoma County, Calif., have passed by a significant margin—
55.9 to 44.9 percent— a ballot initiative that prohibits cultivation of
genetically modified crops. Santa Cruz, Humboldt, Trinity, Marin and
Mendocino counties have already passed similar measures. The Center
for Food Safety reportedly helped draft Measure M, providing legal and
scientific counsel over the last year. See The San Francisco Chronicle,
November 9, 2016.
