Official map of California vote on GMO-labeling #Prop37. 53.1% no. 46.9% yes. I’m glad the sloppy, unscientific, protectionist initiative failed, but glad discussion on transparency in food sourcing is initiated. I agree with the L.A. Times editorial board, which recommended against a yes vote, saying:
“What’s needed is a consistent, rational food policy, not a piecemeal approach based on individual groups’ pet concerns.”

This was a tough one for me, and mostly reinforced my frustration with CA’s ballot measure system of direct democracy. I hope the conversation will continue!
