Into the Weeds

Dewayne Johnson, a former Bay Area groundskeeper, suffers from a terminal cancer diagnosis due to the hazardous weed-killing products used by the multinational agrochemical corporation Monsanto.

Despite the knowledge that the use of glyphosate in law maintenance spray contaminates food supplies, wipes out animal populations, and can cause cancer, there were no warnings on the labels. Johnson, alongside the other people affected by the product, explores the extent of Monsanto's blame and looks forward to helping dismantle the use of hazardous products in lawn care.
