I have a survey of sorts, and I know Redditors to be rather intelligent... (self.Ohio)

{Ohio}

6 ups - 13 downs = 0 votes

I have been living in Ohio for most of my life, but did not become immersed in politics until the last few years. Watching what has been happening in the world around us makes me glad to live here. But such a blind blissfulness can be dangerous, and I feel it is now time to start taking back our country from the elitist, NSA, and corrupt government. Since we have to start small, I thought I would start here.

My first question is do we REALLY want GMO's grown and put in our food without our knowledge? Would you sign a petition to force companies to put GMO labeling? I won't say think of the kids, I am not that low, but it may be a good place to start. We have lost our ability to grow and cook our own food, and our kids will have no idea where their food comes from. I think we need to start educating people, and get back to more natural food. I would say ban HFCS, but that is WAY too optimistic.

Would you sign a petition to allow the growing and production on hemp and hemp products. I think we should follow Kentucky and do it sooner than California. This, I truly believe, will be the most important plant for the American population to remove the yoke of corporate greed. Also helps the soil in between corn plantings, which would help us in the long run against over fertilization. This leads to my third and final, would you allow for the decriminalization of personal marijuana use? We have been lied to about this for years, and I am hoping the generation before us can help my generation push through legislation to end this insane war of a plant less dangerous than most over the counter medications.

TL:DR - Do you want GMO labeling or ban?

Do you want industrialized hemp grown and produced here?

Do you really care if people smoke a j in the privacy of their own home?

EDIT: Misquote in the title, there is no intelligence on Reddit, end of line

That sounds like propaganda speak to me. The fact that it is in everything processed now doesn't scare you in the LEAST? The GMO health risks have been left out of MSM, so I can understand why you don't believe they are dangerous. And if they are so safe, why has Monsanto fought EVERY STATE trying to ban or label them? Maybe they don't want us to have a choice of actual healthy food. You can believe what you want, but I know neither are good for you.

Actually im a genetic engineer as a profession so my information on the subject comes from scientific consensus, not propaganda and the main stream media.

Maybe you should reevaluate where your information has come from.

Being against labeling is an issue of economics and principles. Monsantos opinion doesnt matter to me.

Because the labeling will cost more money? Food is already too cheap because of the HFCS and over processing. How long have GMO's been in circulation? Do you think there may be a correlation between the high cancer rate of North America and the use of GMO's or HFCS? I think there is, because we are what we eat, and if we eat nothing but HFCS and not real food, we won't be healthy, ever.

Also, if we are going to grow GMO's, use them for ethanol, not food. I'm fine with that.

Correlation doesn't equal causation, hippie.

And when we find out that is the reason in 30 years, I will still be alive

and when we find out in 30 years that Crest causes brain cancer, I'll be fine because I use Colgate. It's really easy to say stuff, it's a lot harder to back it up with science. /r/conspiratard

I am loving this. The fluoride in the water will reduce us to gibbering idiots anyways.

Totally dude. I stopped taking you seriously when you said you know most redditors are "rather intelligent".

Exactly, I was about to edit my original post to state, 'There is obviously no intelligence on Reddit, I should have posted on 4chan....'
