Journal Of Food Law & Policy - Volume 13 Spring 2017, Journal Editors

Journal of Food Law & Policy

After Donald Trump’s victory last November, we put out a call for brief essays examining what happened, what’s likely to happen, and what policymakers and advocates can do to keep pushing forward. The response was extraordinary. We received thought provoking submissions on a number of important topics, including antitrust, trade policy, food safety, and labor, among others. Instead of running a standard issue comprised of legal articles—with essays as an accompaniment—we decided to reverse the format and devote the bulk of this issue to these essays. The result is a penetrating and timely look at the ...


The Price Tag On Designer Babies: Market Share Liability, Boston College Law Review Staff 2018 Boston College Law School

The Price Tag On Designer Babies: Market Share Liability, Boston College Law Review Staff

Boston College Law Review

The prospect of genetically modifying humans has loomed over the public for decades. Now, science fiction is becoming reality. New technology and expanding research are positioned to make genetic alteration a routine, pre-conception appointment. For several years, China has been experimenting with germline editing on non-viable human embryos. In April 2016, the UK also approved a group of scientists to begin similar research. In the United States, genetic engineering is a multibillion-dollar industry. Although ethical debates over human genetic modification have checked the industry, the potential for clinical trials has become a reality as companies race to dominate the technology ...


“Warning: Use May Result In Cruel And Unusual Punishment”: How Administrative Law And Adequate Warning Labels Can Bring About The Demise Of Lethal Injection, Julia Eaton 2018 Boston College Law School

“Warning: Use May Result In Cruel And Unusual Punishment”: How Administrative Law And Adequate Warning Labels Can Bring About The Demise Of Lethal Injection, Julia Eaton

Boston College Law Review

Lethal injection, although currently the preferred method of execution in the United States, causes more botched executions than any other method. Despite recorded instances of extreme pain and suffering, the United States Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) does not regulate lethal injection drugs for safety and effectiveness because their use occurs “off-label” and thus outside of the purview of the FDA’s regulatory scope. Challengers to the FDA’s lack of regulation have thus far been unsuccessful in the courts due to the deference that the courts give to agency decisions. This Note discusses the ways in which administrative law ...


Remaking Making: Integrating Self-Replicating Technologies With The Exhaustion Doctrine, Adanna Uwazurike 2018 Boston College Law School

Remaking Making: Integrating Self-Replicating Technologies With The Exhaustion Doctrine, Adanna Uwazurike

Boston College Law Review

Self-replicating technologies such as genetically modified organisms have unquestionably improved the farming industry. In order to ensure continued innovation in this area, the law has increasingly established protections for this technology. Although the exhaustion doctrine serves as a limit to a patent holder’s rights, the application of the current patent infringement regime may be over-inclusive as self-replicating technologies continue to advance. This Note identifies Bowman v. Monsanto as a recent example of how self-replicating patented products could lead to blanket infringement liability, including for innocent infringers. This Note recommends that the definition of “making” be redefined to include only ...


Hb 249 - Controlled Substances And Prescription Drug Monitoring Database, Emily R. Polk, Brandon M. Reed 2018 Georgia State University College of Law

Hb 249 - Controlled Substances And Prescription Drug Monitoring Database, Emily R. Polk, Brandon M. Reed

Georgia State University Law Review

The Act amends Georgia’s controlled-substances statutes to expand medical provider requirements to record prescription drug information in an electronic prescription drug monitoring program database (PDMP). Medical providers are now required to use the PDMP to enter information about their prescription of certain types and quantities of opioids. The purpose of the act is to fight Schedule II opioid abuse throughout the state of Georgia. A medical provider’s failure to report required information is reported to his or her respective state regulatory board for possible reprimand. In addition to mandatory reporting, the Act includes various other provisions related to ...


Sb 104 - Carjacking, Fentanyl And "Upskirting", Katherine H. Krouse, Lauren R. Light 2018 Georgia State University College of Law

Sb 104 - Carjacking, Fentanyl And "Upskirting", Katherine H. Krouse, Lauren R. Light

Georgia State University Law Review

The Act includes various amendments to Georgia’s criminal code. Three changes are most notable. First, the Act designates the offense of hijacking a motor vehicle as hijacking a motor vehicle in the first degree and creates the offense of hijacking a motor vehicle in the second degree. Second, the Act criminalizes the use of a device to film underneath or through an individual’s clothing. Lastly, the Act adds the drug Fentanyl and its various analogs to the list of controlled substances.

Localism, Labels, And Animal Welfare, Samuel R. Wiseman 2018 Florida State University

Localism, Labels, And Animal Welfare, Samuel R. Wiseman

Northwestern Journal of Law & Social Policy

The law does relatively little to improve the welfare of animals raised for food. In the short term, at least, market-based solutions appear to have more promise as a means of promoting farm animal welfare, as consumers increasingly seek out local and humanely-raised meat and eggs. To aid consumers in identifying these products, certification systems of varying degrees of rigor exist, but even these are of little use to consumers in the restaurant context, which accounts for a large percentage of meat consumption. Patrons see only finished meals, making fraud difficult to detect, and a recent newspaper investigation suggests that ...


Delaying Competition: How Sound Public Policy And Rigorous Antitrust Scrutiny Can Be Applied To Controversial Patent Settlements, 17 J. Marshall Rev. Intell. Prop. L. 655 (2018), Sam Hensel 2018 John Marshall Law School

Delaying Competition: How Sound Public Policy And Rigorous Antitrust Scrutiny Can Be Applied To Controversial Patent Settlements, 17 J. Marshall Rev. Intell. Prop. L. 655 (2018), Sam Hensel

The John Marshall Review of Intellectual Property Law

The rising costs of prescription drugs are a growing concern for many Americans. The restraint of trade for pharmaceutical drugs is a cause of rising costs for consumers, as companies seek to push potential competitors out of the market to maintain profits. This unlawful restraint of trade will be discussed in this comment. Specifically, this comment will focus on "Pay for Delay" agreements, mostly between generic versus brand name pharmaceutical manufacturers. The proliferation of these agreements only leads to an unsustainable market that discourages innovation and advancement, and promotes fraud, as invalid patents are used as leverage to prevent generics ...


The “Deeming Rule”: The Fda’S Destruction Of The Vaping Industry, Lauren H. Greenberg 2018 Brooklyn Law School

The “Deeming Rule”: The Fda’S Destruction Of The Vaping Industry, Lauren H. Greenberg

Brooklyn Law Review

The FDA has recently passed sweeping regulations, which classifies and then regulates electronic cigarettes as “tobacco products” in the same manner as traditional cigarettes. Though the agency reasons that unknowing adults and children may easily turn to e-cigarettes without fully understanding the potential health effects, there is a lack of conclusive evidence in this field to justify such a comprehensive regulatory scheme. Through the far-reaching “Deeming Rule,” e-cigarette manufacturers are forced to comply with financially burdensome and time-consuming requirements before taking most of their products to market. The channels by which the FDA proposes manufacturers and retailers gain permission from ...


High Priorities: Land Use, Marijuana, And Meta-Values, Spenser Owens 2018 Washington University in St. Louis

High Priorities: Land Use, Marijuana, And Meta-Values, Spenser Owens

Washington University Jurisprudence Review

This Note will examine the motivations surrounding the adoption of zoning ordinances pertaining to the production and sale of marijuana through the lens of John Dewey’s theory of valuation. Applying Dewey’s theory to the zoning ordinances of a sampling of state and local governments, I will argue first that the choice of land uses to be regulated and restricted through local zoning ordinances is ultimately referable to values held by the community in which the ordinances are enacted. Second, I will argue that the decisions made on the state level carry more “value” as defined by Dewey’s ...


"Strike Two, You're Out!" The Need For A More Stringent Drug Policy In Major League Baseball, Zackary Kessinger 2018 Washington University in St. Louis

"Strike Two, You're Out!" The Need For A More Stringent Drug Policy In Major League Baseball, Zackary Kessinger

Washington University Jurisprudence Review

This Note argues that MLB should adopt a more stringent drug policy than the one currently set forth in MLB’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program for two reasons. First, the increasing prevalence of PED use among MLB players threatens baseball’s integrity. Second, professional players’ PED use may encourage aspiring young athletes to abuse PEDs, which may harm their long-term health.

Food Federalism: States, Local Governments, And The Fight For Food Sovereignty, Sarah B. Schindler 2018 University of Maine School of Law

Food Federalism: States, Local Governments, And The Fight For Food Sovereignty, Sarah B. Schindler

Faculty Publications

Recently, a number of states have sought to withdraw or restrain local power. In this Article, which is part of the “Re-Thinking State Relevance” symposium hosted by the Ohio State Law Journal, I write about a state taking the opposite approach, and attempting to affirmatively endow its local governments with additional powers. The state is Maine, and the context is control over local food production and sales. This Article begins by addressing the emergence of the sustainable local foods movement broadly, and reasons for the growth of this movement. It then focuses more pointedly on the food sovereignty movement, considering ...
