"LA County Halts Use of Popular Weed Killer on County Property"

"The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Tuesday directed all departments to stop using a popular weed killer until more is known about its potential health and environmental effects.

Supervisor Kathryn Barger recommended the moratorium on glyphosate -- a main ingredient in the herbicide brand Roundup.

"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," Barger said."
