State moves to regulate rodenticides Featured

Written by 

On May 14, 2013, the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a resolution of opposition to the use of anticoagulant rodenticides (click here to see that story) and now the state of California has proposed regulations focusing on that class of rodenticides. The proposal would require that the Agricultural Commissions Office regulate and provide oversight for the use of these rodenticides and would also eliminate their availability in the retail marketplace.

Hear more on this important issue, using the player below, including comments made by Jeff Dolf, Humboldt County Agriculture Commissioner, during a presentation to the County Board of Supervisors, clarifing that these rodenticides would not be legal in marijuana grows. This piece was submitted by KMUD News Correspondent Daniel Mintz and aired on the KMUD Local News Tues., July 23, 2013.
