Cali came up with the answer:
we don't give a shit because most are hippy fucks and eat organic gay food which is already labels. Plus it would cost us more money and we already pay a shit load to live here. Fuck it
I think this prop was pretty straightforward. Either it's marked as GMO or it's not. How hard can it be?They are already doing it on the fruit codes. If the number leads with an 8, it's GMO, if it leads with a 9, it's organic. http://www.drfranklipman.com/what-do-those-codes-on-stickers-of-fruits-and-some-veggies-mean/ You'd thnk Cali would be all over stuff like gay marriage and GMO labeling, but I guess they are not who we thought they were.
California passed another one of these warning label things about 10 years ago - Prop. 65 - that required manufacturers, vendors, et al. to put a warning label on any product that potentially contained any suspected carcinogenic or mutagenic materials. Since there are a lot of everyday materials that have never gone through full regulatory tests, the manufacturers stuck the labels on pretty much everything, creating little more than confusion in the general public. I suspect the people out there thought this was a similar well -intentioned but ultimately unworkable bureaucratic nightmare. I think they were right and I say that as a commie symp liberal.

kind of sad when iran, and china require it, for the consumer to be able to know, and the corp. money 'buys' the vote to oppose.
Let me guess, confusing wording on the ballot that makes it so the public has no idea if a "yes" or a "no" supports the bill?
