VOTE YES NOVEMBER 8, 2016
On the: Sonoma County Transgenic Contamination Prevention Ordinance
Prohibit the propagation, cultivation, raising and growing of genetically engineered organisms
in Sonoma County.
- To protect Sonoma County’s native plants, trees, and animals from transgenic contamination by genetically engineered organisms (Alfalfa, Kentucky blue grass, fescue turf grass and trees are being genetically engineered);
- To defend and promote the economic integrity of organic, and other markets that are harmed by transgenic contamination by genetically engineered organisms (if 1% of a non-gmo farmers crop is contaminated by GMO pollen transfer, it is illegal for the farmer to sell the crop or save the seed, and according to U.S. Patent Law, both belong to the corporation owning the patent on the seed);
- To protect Sonoma County from increased pesticide use resulting from genetically engineered plant propagation and cultivation (GE crops are responsible for increasing herbicide use by some 527 million pounds in the U.S. over the first 16 years of their commercial use. ; and
- To preserve the right of Sonoma County residents to grow the plants and crops of their choice and to be free from transgenic contamination from engineered organisms (Plant pollen and seed is carried by the wind, water, insects, and on the fur of animals.).
