Chlorpyrifos Ban: "Pesticide Bill Passes Maryland General Assembly"

"A bill that will phase out the use of the pesticide chlorpyrifos in the state has passed the Maryland General Assembly.

Critics say the pesticide is harmful to young children and women of childbearing age if they’re exposed to it.

Agricultural uses include treating pests on row crops and fruit trees as well as golf courses and turf fields."
