    Monsanto Develops First Genetically Modified Strain of Marijuana

    June 16, 2015
    Monsanto has announced it has patented the first genetically modified strain of marijuana. Global AgInvesting reports that the news has been welcomed by scientists and leaders of the agriculture business alike as a move forward towards the industrial use of marijuana and hemp products could bring a major shift towards marijuana policies in the U.S.A. and ultimately, to the world.
    Under present U.S. federal law, it is illegal to possess, use, buy, sell, or cultivate marijuana, since the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 classifies marijuana as a Schedule I drug, although it has been decriminalized to some extent in certain states, Monsanto’s interest in the field has been interpreted by experts as the precursor to “a major shift in marijuana policy in the U.S.” as it is believed the company would not have invested so much time and energy if it had not had “previous knowledge” of the Federal government’s “openness” towards the future legalization of marijuana.
    Lawyer and marijuana law specialist, Edmund Groensch, of the Drug Policy Alliance, admits Monsanto’s involvement in marijuana projects could definitely help the pro-legalization activists.
    Although Monsanto’s testing on cannabis is only at an experimental stage, no plan has yet been released by the agriculture business firm as to what purposes the patented strain would be used for, although specialists believe answers should come this fall as rumors of a controversial new bill which could “loosen up laws around medical marijuana” is reportedly scheduled to pass before congress coming this fall.

    I don't care how hard up I am - if Monsanto's passing the joint, I'm not taking it.

    Supposedly their profits went down 33% last year though so at least people are waking up. I'm more afraid of them going underground at this point. But if they're blatantly trying to market GMO weed, I think they're backing up the wrong tree. Sure, to some people weed is weed but I feel like the core of the weed community is pretty health savvy and environmentally conscious.

    Hope that can be avoided. Our genetics need to remain public domain. Patents will kill our plant.

    If these autos keep getting planted at the same rate and we stop planting regular beans we’re gonna be in trouble too.

    I'd take a Gm ganja plant! Just depends on what's done it. Monsanto seem to like engineering crops so they're sterile, and produce no seeds..... Weed has been illegal for near a century! We have always found a way to grow! Always! This is just the next hurdle to over come.

    But do bear in mind just because it is GM, doesn't make it bad! Alter those genes to give 50% thc instead of 20? Fuck, autos are genetically modified! If a strain is crossed with another strain, that's genetically modified. It's not like they're in a lab, altering DNA and making frankenstiens

    I don't like how Monsanto go about their business in general. I wouldn't fancy smoking a plant that uses Round Up as its choice of pest resistance. That stuff kills. They're also essentially forcing farmers into using their seeds by monopolising the seed market. Corporations can suck it as far as I'm concerned 🖕 😊
