I look forward to the day when all poisoning chemicals are more illegal and stringent controlled than DMT and cocaine-since dangerous as those are, herbicides and pesticides are far far worse.

Now you can go to jail for possession of most recreational drugs that usually don’t killing anyone but you can literally kill your neighbors with these horrible chemicals with absolutely no consequences:-/

Recent reviews have found vast problems with the EPA’s oversight of conditional registration. An internal audit showed in 2011 that 70 percent of all active pesticides had been conditionally approved. The audit also concluded that the agency used the label too broadly. Since then, its use has increased. Figures the EPA provided in December put the number at 80 percent.Thousands of pesticides kept conditional status for more than 20 years, the Natural Resources Defense Council, a nonprofit environmental advocacy group, found in 2010. The EPA says studies typically are due within four years.And last year, federal auditors found the agency couldn’t reliably track how many products were conditionally registered or whether safety studies were submitted. As a result, pesticides could linger on the market for years without critical tests, the Government Accountability Office warned in August.
