Repeating Mistakes of the Past: Another Mycoherbicide Research Bill

Bigwood, Jeremy

Report shows that a proposed Congressional plan to require the Office of National Drug Control Policy to revive research into toxic fungal “mycoherbicides” is extremely reckless, dangerous and unpopular, even with White House Drug Czar John Walters. These mold-like biological agents would be sprayed on drug crops in foreign countries, such as Colombia and Afghanistan, where coca and opium are illegally produced.
