Why are you trying to taint MARIJUANA with your GMO. for the past nearly decade, its been viewed as a "harmful class A drug". Now that you are tainting it with your GMO, you have convinced Uruguay that your version is acceptable? Its a federal crime to grow marijuana, but when you change the DNA so its potentially lethal, and you create an alien genome that could make marijuana extremely dangerous, it becomes acceptable? im not sure i understand. how desperate are you, that your GMO sales are falling, you are going to appeal to the marijuana factor?? seriously?

AExpert Answer

I am glad that I can dispel these allegations as Internet rumors and lies.  None of our companies are working on or even aware of any GM marijuana in development or in existence.
