A right move. Surely nobody compos mentis wants to have mutant dead-end kids.

Ban this rot around the world. There is no need for it, it is not going to solve hunger.

We already produce enough food for the world, capitalism and waste prevent proper distribution.

Makes very good sense because gmos are not proven to be safe at this date, et long term effects are unknown on human and animal health also the long term impact on biodiversity with gmos is unknown and so it is unknown how the environment will be affected long term.

  


I think its plain to see the impact of the GMO consumption, if you live in the US and 2/3 of the population is overweight. Most of them are on prescription medication for one reason or another, did you know obesity is a disease in USA? Cancer, diabetes and other conditions are skyrocketing.

This is why I think Putin should be president of the world. In fact just one of the reasons, aside his dignity morals and inteligence. Bravo. Long live freedom.

the punishmentshould should equate to the punishment for selling heroin .. cannabis has tons of health benifits as will be proven as time goes by...

Smart people. Do not buy GMO junk. It can only degrade human genome through the years.
