Although, Prop 37 did not get enough votes to win, many grassroot campaigns are emerging against GMO crops. There is a county in Washington which has rolled out a movement against Mosanto and GMO crops. San Juan County has successfully passed Initiative Measure No. 2012-4 that bans growth of genetically modified foods within its borders. Apart from GMO crops, even genetically modified animals and microorganisms will be barred from thriving in the county. This is surely a landmark achievement in the fight against GMOs. As people seek answers on a political level to the GMO nuisance, there are many possibilities that this ruling will be implemented in other states and counties also across the country.
