Would You Smoke GMO Marijuana?
Video – Activists around the world are rallying against genetically modified foods. But now, the threat extends to the newly-legal marijuana market as corporations like Monsanto, eager to take over the booming market, are likely to develop genetically-modified forms of cannabis. By some measures, cannabis is now the largest cash crop in the US. The market for legal marijuana is larger than that for corn, wheat or sugar.
Cannabis is largely resistant to pests, and does not need pesticides or herbicides to grow. But, if large corporations distribute GMO marijuana, it will provide them the ability to patent and control the production of cannabis. Will the marijuana market face challenges similar to the current food industry? Will cannabis farmers even be allowed to grow marijuana that is not genetically modified?
