Humboldt County, CA: Group hopes to put GMO ban on 2014 ballot

Ten years after legal flaws sent an anti-GMOs measure to a withering end at the ballot box, a new group is looking to bring the issue back before voters in November 2014.

The Committee for GMO Free Humboldt is scheduled to meet today from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Co-op Community Kitchen in Arcata to gather final feedback before submitting the initiative to the county by the end of this week.

The committee’s current draft would make it a public nuisance to “propagate, cultivate, raise or grow” GMOs in the county. The proposed initiative also states that GMO products would still be legal to purchase, sell or conduct research on.
