​Monsanto and co. pouring money into defeating county measure to ban GMOs — RT USA.

 

Big Agribusiness teams up and doles out almost a half of a million dollars to combat a proposed local ordinance in Oregon which would prohibit the use of GMOs from being propagated, cultivated, raised or grown in Jackson County.

With a small local population of 208.545, this may be enough to wine and dine each resident of Jackson County for their vote against Measure 15-119! Compare nearly $500,000 with the meager $102.368 raised by local proponents of the measure, and you can see the influence big agri business has on the local ballot.
