Genetically Modified Alfalfa

Woohoo, the ag secretary in the US has given the thumbs up to the unrestricted commercial cultivation of genetically modified alfalfa. Sheez, who eats that shit? Kidding, health nuts, kidding. Anywho, the traditionalists are not happy claiming their crops will eventually become contaminated with the GM alfalfa. The genetically modified alfalfa contains a gene that makes the plant resistant to the herbicide Roundup. In other words, farmers can merrily spray  chemicals all over their crops without killing the plant. No worries, most of the alfalfa is used to make hay for dairy cattle and horse.  Hmm, what could possibly go wrong?
