Dioxin Deniers at the FDA (tags)
The FDA will ignore pesticides, chlorine, dioxins, radiation and other industrial parts of typical cigarettes in its new Act. This Act, supposedly against the cigarette industry, is entirely in support of that industry, even to the point of assisting it to evade legal consequences.
Reefer Madness II: Corporate war on natural plants continues. (tags)
The war on tobacco is a fake crusade designed to protect the cigarette industry. It's not about "smoking" or "clean air" but about covering up for some pretty mind-blowing crimes from the cigarette cartel.
Obama May Sign Pesticide Industry Protection Act (tags)
All Bad Legislation comes wearing a halo. That's how about 60 years of Reefer Madness drug war atrocities began. The just-passed law (not signed yet) giving the FDA power to "regulate tobacco" is not what mainstream media, or public officials tell us. This is Reefer Madness II, concocted by the same industries who did RM I...important whether or not one cares about "smoking" of any plant.

Join California Safe Schools & Tell EPA Pesticide Labels Should Identify ALL Ingredients (tags)
Our national pesticide law only requires that certain ingredients in a pesticide (called the active ingredients) be identified on the label. All the others are misleadingly called inert ingredients, and are not identified. These same ingredients escape from most of the testing and evaluation required for active ingredients. They're not really inert, just untested. The public is being kept in the dark It's time for a change!!
Contra Costa Delta Region Sprayed w/ Pesticides (tags)

In Defense of Polluters: Howard Dean's Vermont (tags)
Tremblay contends that Dean "is a business man with big money. He is not a farmer. He doesn’t care about the people or the environment. He doesn’t care that the air stinks or that there are flies everywhere. He doesn’t care that his trucks ruin the roads and make it unsafe for your children to ride their bikes. He doesn’t care that he destroys your way of life, and unfortunately the state of Vermont doesn’t care either."
