Literally bought and drank a big Mighty Mango last night... FUCK.
OMG YOU'RE ALL GOING TO DIE!
LOL, frivolous lawsuit is frivolous... however $45 is $45.
Ok, that's it. I'm gonna sue my dispensary for selling me genetically modified strains, otherwise known as.............hybrids.
HAhahaha, gmo pot makes me sad.
Hybrids are not geneticaly modified, simply two different varieties mated together, one indica parent plant and one sativa parent plant. and whalla hybrid offsprings.
But im sure you already knew this, this is for the uninformed folk who may be stumbaling across this information
HAHA JUST KIDDING
Regular pot's effects.
GMO pot effects
Pretty sure that's the very definition of genetic modification...
Damn you Mendal and your GMO devil peas!
That's the disingenuous pro Monsanto definition, but pretty much everyone knows when you use the term "GMO" you are talking about transgenetic modification directly on the genetic material, not simply sexually cross breeding two organisms.
I've drank so many of these juices! I honestly like them. I like to drink the mango ones before smoking to get more medicated Damn i cant believe i didn't see this sooner. Fuck... Good lookout anyways bob!
Im actually using the original definition of the term "genetically modified".
This, of course, can be done in a lab as well as a dirt field in numerous ways including humans hand selecting specific types for breeding. This is not dissimilar to the "pure breed" dogs you see existing today. A lot of those dogs couldn't survive in nature let alone exist without human intervention.
It has been my experience that it's typically the people with a specific agenda who like to delineate further on this subject.
Cross breeding is what has been going on for hundreds of years, Genetically modifying an organism is a whole new level of tampering with nature.
When we cross-bread we don't cross more than a species a boundaries, maybe a family boundary at the most. with genetic engineering, we can cross kingdom boundaries, the highest level of taxonomical classification.
We can take a chunk of bacteria dna and insert it into a pot plant, or a corn plant. with conventional plant breeding we could not cross more than two different species of corn.
Yes GMOing is concidered plant breeding, however plant breeding is not considered Genetically Modifying a plant, however if you are Monsanto and have billions of dollars invested in GMOing, your sure wanting to fool everyone into thinking the two are the same have a nice day
EDIT, in botany class, my professor shared with us his opinion on Mendal's pea experiments, what he told us was that Mendal's data fit too perfectly what he was trying to achieve, an thus may have been falsified to help support his thesis. The professor also pointed out that even if Mendal's data was doctored, the basic principals he described still hold true.
It's been my experience that people who insist that adding fish genes to a strawberry is exactly the same as breeding two varieties of dogs have a specific agenda.
Yummm............fish flavored strawberries. What took them so long. ............
I wonder what a tomato-flavored trout would taste like?
On a more serious note, just because naked/pepsi got caught doesn't mean they will stop this kind of bullshit. It's important to know which multinational corporation owns the company processing our food, and pepsi is evil as fuck. And don't think for a second that odwalla is any better than naked, they are owned by coca cola who is just as bad. Odwalla used to have organic drinks but no more.
There's a lot of lists out there of the natural brands that have been snapped up and adulterated by these evil corporations, as well as lists of the corporations that are in in support of round-up ready gmo crops and against any form of gmo labeling. It's quite illuminating to cross-reference these two types of lists.
I'm pissed that I didn't realize the deadline for claiming my $45, I wanna get in on naked's latest "cost of doing business", which is tax-deductible for them if they even pay any...
Did anyone else get an email like this? I did say I didn't have a receipt! What a crock!

No email here :3
Maybe a miss-click or a database error even
No email here either, waiting anxiously...
Well, I guess I'm getting screwed....par for the course.
Did you actually buy the product though?
Yes, at my local Whole Foods. Something funny about that?
No, but it would be if you hadn't.
I remember seeing two options, the first one required no proof of purchase but the amount awarded was smaller than the option with proof of purchase.
If for some reason you clicked in the larger amount, you were supposed to provide receipts as proof.
I did choose the smaller amount because I never keep my grocery receipts.
I did a little research and tracked down the owner of the site: the law offices of Gilardi & Co. Turns out they specialize in these kind of suits. Below is a list of their current cases, with hopes you find something(s) appropriate to your situation. Judging from the size of the list, I'd be surprised if anyone wasn't affected by a few of these companies. Among others, there's Well Fargo, Verizon, Sprint, Safeway, 24hr Fitness, Electronic Arts, Chase, Bayer, etc.
By the way, if you select Case Status and search Naked, it'll show where the case is.
I got that bs email Vicki. I replied, "First I get juiced by Pepsi, now by a group of lawyers."
I replied too, and my comments were not as nice.
I got a reply from the lawyers and it said my file was updated to the without proof section at the pro rated price. Que sera sera...
