Despite biotech companies spending more than $1.3 million to try to defeat the measures of several Oregon counties to ban GMOs from their food supply, two counties have successfully eradicated genetically modified organisms from their cities.
The newly approved measure mandates that people “cease harvest, and destroy or remove all genetically engineered plants” no later than 12 months after the ordinance goes into effect. With Jackson County’s measure 15-119 and nearby Josephine County’s measure 17-58, GMOs were voted out with a nearly 2-1 ratio.
