Portland Maine considers legalizing sales of raw milk at farmers’ markets

From Liz Leslie on Earth Eats:

Raw milk has seen a fight — from the August 3 raid and arrest of the “Rawesome Three” to recent E. coli illnesses tied to the product.

Portland, Maine thinks it may have a solution.

Legalize Milk

A package deal sent to the city council asks for raw milk to be legalized at farmer’s markets, but any vendor who sold the milk would also have an information sheet attached.

The fact that raw milk isn’t legal is news to Portland vendors.

Maine is one of 30 states that allow for the sale of raw milk in some manner, although it’s illegal to sell raw milk in schools or hospitals.

  1. How can a city legalize something that they have no right to criminalize in the first place?

    Would you be excited if the city were to legalize sex between a husband and wife? How about legalizing having children? How about legalizing worshiping your God? Or legalizing education your children?

    Are we so far gone that you do not see the extreme danger in this approach?

    If the sheeple allow government to legalize something they are also allowing them to have the option to criminalize the same behavior at any time in the future.

    Some thing like this is best guaranteed in a Constitution or if put into a bill the language should explicitly state something like “drinking raw milk is a God given inalienable right that is beyond the jurisdiction of the state.”
    In fact go a step further and put a label with that laws wording on every bottle of raw milk.
