This is a huge opportunity to ban dangerous pesticide use in Maryland.
Right now, a bill to ban the brain-damaging pesticide chlorpyrifos is just a few votes away from passing in the Maryland state legislature.
Chlorpyrifos is in the class of chemicals developed as a nerve poison by the Nazis. It’s been linked to Parkinson’s disease and lung cancer as well as brain damage in children.
Maryland uses as much as 82,000 pounds of chlorpyrifos on crops every year with devastating effects. Chlorpyrifos gets in our food, air and water, putting wildlife, kids, rural communities, and farm workers at risk.
This bill to ban chlorpyrifos has passed the state House. Now it only needs to pass the Senate before it goes to the Governor’s desk.
Your state senator could decide the bill’s fate any day now! But Dow Chemicals is working hard to stop it. So we need you to speak up NOW and make sure your Senator votes YES to banning this dangerous pesticide.
Make a call NOW: Tell your state senator to ban Dow’s toxic, brain-damaging pesticides in Maryland.
