    California moves to ban brain-damaging pesticide as EPA resists court action

    Another win for all of us! The other day I posted that New York banned these brain damaging pesticides, now California has done the same. This is important because so much of our food is grown in California. Trump clearly does not have the "peoples" best interests in mind.

    Excerpt:

    California, the nation's top agricultural state, banned a common pesticide Wednesday, citing research showing it hinders brain development in children.

    Chlorpyrifos, known on the market as Lorsban, is sprayed on a wide variety of crops including corn and cranberries, and farmers often call it a last line of defense against certain insects.

    The chemical was initially targeted for phase-out by the Obama administration after

    U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) scientists recommended a ban on the pesticide in 2016. But that decision was reversed under the Trump administration, and the agency has delayed taking further action, leaving bans in state hands.

    California's action comes from the state's EPA, though state lawmakers are also considering a ban by legislation.

    The agency argued the ban was needed "to prevent the significant harm this pesticide causes children, farm workers and vulnerable communities," according to a statement.

    The EPA banned household use of chlorpyrifos in 2000 due to its risks for children, and scientists recommended a full ban on the pesticide in 2016. But President Trump's former EPA administrator, Scott Pruitt, ignored that advice, leaving the department in a long legal battle over the substance.

    That's really strange.

    After spending billions and billions of dollars in California alone to make sure public school children never ever develop the ability of critical thinking or to establish a knowledge base in the child's mind, all to make sure their victims will always vote for Rodents, California is now banning chemicals in the farmlands that are dangerous to Rodents in the wild.

    Wonders never cease.

    What are the Rodents in California going to do to protect the developing brains of children from the shears of Planned Parenthood butchers?

    We the People DID NOT vote in a majority Rodent Congress, they stole it via election fraud.

    By the way...

    ...the federal government has no Constitutional authority to regulate ant form of agriculture, so the decision on this pesticide should never have been out of Sacramento ' s mitts in the first place.

    I'd bet good money, pesticide use is far from the cause of brain damaged, liberal californians.
