Poison In Bisbee?

06-30-2017

TO POISON OR NOT TO POISON. THAT IS THE QUESTION In Bisbee.

So far, only the State of California has said glyphosate, the main ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, causes cancer. The World Health Org says it "probably does", and no one says it does not, except its manufacturer Monsanto.

In his interview with KCTR News reporter Chuck Alton, Internationally known toxics activist Michael Gregory takes Bisbee to task for telling residents if they can't come up with an alternative, the town will break a decades long "pact" not to use herbicides in Bisbee. Gregory believes the City should be doing the research.

Those that strongly oppose the use of any poisons to manage weeds and grasses will meet in Warren at 7 a.m. Friday morning to tell Council member Joan Hansen, the Mayor's point person for the issue, that the Town has set them up for failure in the search for an alterntive... a search they will say will take more time and expertise than they have to successfully and scientifically research the matter.

Chuck Alton hosts Michael Gregory in the KCTRnews.com C Street Studio on Thursday afternoon, 6/29/17.
