I find this somewhat odd. Minnesota in the United States has apparently enacted special legislation to protect the DNA of its “state grain” wild rice.1 The law requires the state apparatus to keep a close eye on genetic modification of wild rice, not only in Minnesota but throughout the US, and to notify interested parties if permits for GM rice are issued anywhere. Why? Minnesotans, please enlighten us.
- Not a true rice of course, but you knew that. [↩]
