Re: “Meet the Rat Poison Rep Who's Super-Concerned About Your Health

I agree Ed. A ban would have been better.

However, the way the pesticide laws are written under FIFRA (Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act) if a pesticide is registered with the EPA, local governments and municipalities are powerless to ban it! Federal law trumps all. Resolutions, which are voluntary is the only avenue that can be pursued legally. That along with education.

FIFRA is the reason it is so difficult to get a product off the market once declared dangerous. The laws that govern the registration and cancellation of pesticides were written by the pesticide lobby.
