I’ll be very surprised if Monsanto doesn’t sue the guy that had organics for stealing their patented seeds. This seems to be their MO. Get one guy to grow it, then sue everybody around for “stealing” their seeds when they blow over. They hire posting groups and spin groups to go online and deny it, thus hiding their dirtywork. It’s a great way to create a monopoly, making them billions while wiping out consumer opportunity. Well played Monsanto. But what happens if those seeds turn out to be poison to humans? Do we have the right to even ask if they are in our food? Or do we simply have to eat them and get sick for your profits?
