It would not just be farmers growing this crap. Ever heard of wind blowing seeds or birds carrying them? The problem is so many of you are ignorant of the reality of what is happening to farmers who are just trying to make an honest living. This would hit them way harder than the evil Monsanto.
No one hates GMO's more than me. This legislation would have created more problems than it would fix.
Did you know that posted in the cafeteria of the Monsanto pharmaceutical factory in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, that informs customers that
“as far as practicable, GM soya and maize (has been removed) from all food products served in our restaurant. We have taken the steps to ensure that you, the customer, can feel confident in the food we serve.”
The notice was posted by the Sutcliffe Catering Group which provides Monsanto’s factory cafeteria with dining.
According to CBC Canada News “Monsanto confirms the authenticity of the notice, but company spokesman Tony Coombes says the only reason for the GM-free foods is because the company believes in choice.”

What would the legislation need to say, in your opinion, to get it to pass?
I'm not from CA, but think this issue is a national one. I'm sick of having to eat GMO foods from BPA lined cans.
