  1. Hello there at GG. My name is Marc and i am Belgian .Since a little bit more then a year ..i am making music with Lee (online that is) as he is an excellent rapper. We wrote eachother once in a while ..but he never mentioned his struggle…until just recently. I was completely flabbergasted …especially because he was still writing lyrics and taking the time to make music with somebody he never met in person.I already knew about monsanto way before..and a while ago they even banned roundup from the stores here in Belgium. I sincerely hope that Lee can win this fight both physically and in court…and that American justice can stand against corporate businesses.You at GG i want to thank for all the work and time you spend writing this extensive and detailed blog….giving me the chance to follow the case. Thank you.With kind Regards

    1. Hi Marc! Thanks so much for your note. I can completely see how talented Lee must be in expressing himself through word and music, which makes it that much more devastating that such a star is struggling because of a corrupt company and his own EPA. I am hopeful that the verdict will be the right one and Lee can move on and fight the cancer with all he’s got!

  2. Thanks so much for doing this. I’m going to put this blog on Nextdoor in Belmont and San Carlos

  3. Hi Kelly !!

    I’m curious . The Johnson trial was the first, but there were other complaints accusing Monsanto’s RU to have caused them NHL but never went to trial . It was a wrongful death complaint due to RU exposure. in 2016

    Was it settled out of court ? or did the judge stand down and dismissed for lack of evidence at that time ?

    I believe there were 3 complaints filed before Johnson that never went to trial and no mention as to why they didn’t .

    Not that it matters now since we have proved it to be what we’ve said all along , I think those individuals who tried and failed be allowed to try again . Unless that is , Monsanto paid them off with a stipulation that no details of the settlements be made public

    Thanks GG and we love your blogs too.

GG loves comments!! Let me know your thoughts!
