Support For Ban On Glyphosate Based Herbicides On Los Alamos County Land

I wholeheartedly support the proposed ban of glyphosate based herbicides on all Los Alamos County land. I am grateful to the Environmental Sustainability Board for sponsoring this. As a retired Physical Scientist, I have followed this issue nationally and locally for many years. If the overwhelming data alone aren’t sufficient for you, is it not prudent to err on the side of caution? The ethical, public health, ecological, and economic arguments solidly reinforce this ban. Please approve it.
