The Yes Side On No Pesticides


Jackson County's vote in May to ban GMO crops overshadowed a vote on a nearly identical measure in Josephine County. 

Now Josephine County voters are considering a ballot measure that could ban pesticides if passed. 

Measure 17-63 is called"The Freedom from Pesticides Bill of Rights" by its supporters. 

We continue our coverage of Election 2014 with two members of the group pushing for its passage.  

LISTENER REQUEST: Here's the link to Evaggelos Vallianatos's book, Poison Spring.
