GMOS banned in San Juan County, Washington State

Residents in Washington State’s San Juan County passed a GMO initiative to ban the growth of genetically modified organisms. Initiative Measure No: 2012-4 bans the growth of genetically modified organisms and it is now illegal to “propagate, cultivate, raise or grow plants, animals and other organisms which have been genetically modified” in San Juan County.

GMO’s are still allowed in a carefully controlled environment subject to the control of health care providers and researchers.

In a strange phenomenon in the United States where the FDA takes absolutely no action against the growth and lack of labelling of GMO products, San Juan County becomes the fourth county behind Mendocino, Trinity and Marin county in California to pass a GMO ban.
