  1. If civil liberty is anything in meaning like a civil right I say BS. A civil right is really a privilege granted by government not a right. I say what you put in your body is an Inalienable right — a God given right.

    Steves’ key quote is that he tries to “…inject a European sensibility into the discussion here in the United States.” I think this would apply to raw milk policy as well as marijuana. Look at the raw milk vending machines in the town squares and even the school cafeterias in Europe. My colleagues visited the civil aviation navigation service provider in France, where they served your choice of sweet raw milk or soured raw milk in the cafeteria. When are we going to get the vending machines? And when are we going to get raw dairy in US restaurants?

  3. Legalizing assumes that what you put in your body is a permission that can be granted or given away.

    What we put in our bodies is an inalienable right – and is not something that can “be legalized.” Since it can not be made illegal in the first place. i.e. Any law that interferes with an inalienable right is by definition null and void.

    The better way to approach this is to change the state constitution to recognize this inalienable right or to pass a resolution repealing the past law and noting that it is not within the purview of government to regulate what people put into their bodies.
