Patty Pagaling and Joanie Blaxter speak with Our Ventura TV host, George Alger, about their efforts to remove glyphosate (most notably used in “Roundup”) from use by Ventura County agencies.

In March 2015 the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer classified glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic in humans.”
Pagaling and Blaxter also discuss alternatives to toxic week control.
