I'm a small farmer. It's actually quiet the OPPOSITE. There are 15 sell-out states so far that now have laws making it illegal to ban GM crops!
The sell out states are Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, and West Virginia.
The companies, like Monsanto, are getting these laws passed to protect their GM seeds, and to drive more small farmers, and organic farmers out of business.
Witht the passing of these laws, companies like Monsanto now have the right to sue any farmer who saves seeds that have been pollinated by their patented GM seeds from pollen drift, birds, bees, bats, or wind blown pollen.
This gives these companies TITANIC power and control over our food supply. They will very effectively be able to drive small farmers and organic crop/seed farmers right out of business.
