Biotech voted down in Calif. county
: "Legislation restricting biotechnology has been passed elsewhere, but nothing as sweeping as the proposal in Mendocino County, a place with a frontier spirit where the biggest cash crop is marijuana. The local ban will not prevent processed food made with genetically modified ingredients from being sold in stores. There are no known genetically modified crops raised in Mendocino County, but farmers said they would use the law as a marketing tool, especially in Europe, where opposition to genetically engineered foods is fierce" 7:51:07 PM
