The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors directed all departments to stop using the world’s most used weedkiller glyphosate, it reported on Tuesday. Supervisor Kathryn Barger recommended the moratorium on glyphosate and told myNewsLA.com; “I am asking county departments to stop the use of this herbicide until public health and environmental professionals can determine if it’s safe for further use in L.A. County and explore alternative methods for vegetation management.”
