Every real libertarian knows the reason the Feds ban raw milk is because it has special probiotics and enzymes that promote individual liberty and self-reliance, and reduces the Feds power and authority over the masses. There’s a reason why libertarians love raw milk so much!
However, the federal government has a problem with how you choose to go about your life, therefore raw milk is outrageously dangerous and nobody should drink it.
While on the federal level, lawmakers like former Congressman Ron Paul and current Rep. Thomas Massie attempted to pass legislation that would have let states treat raw milk sale and consumption as they wished. But, they were never successful.
But many states adopting the principle of nullification have been able to put an end to the federal prohibition on raw milk. Now, consumers in California, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Illinois, and others, have options, either by purchasing raw milk from stores or from farmers directly.
In Utah, a group of lawmakers is working toward making raw milk sales legal. Soon, the state may be joining others in their decision to stand against the federal government.
On Feb. 14, 2017, a bill introduced by Sen. David Hinkins (R-27) and Rep. Marc Roberts (R-67) that expands raw milk laws in the state passed a Utah Senate committee.
The bill allows raw milk producers to sell up to 120 gallons of the product every month to consumers. This exempts them from meeting rigorous requirements before being able to sell the product, giving consumers more choices when looking for a raw milk provider.
As the Tenth Amendment Center has reported, the FDA wants to fully prohibit raw milk sales across the country. And not too long ago, the agency even raided Amish farms and companies like Rawsome Foods in order to keep them from selling raw milk.
With laws like the one Utah lawmakers are attempting to pass, this means that more states are adding protections in the books to give locals the chance to sell and buy the products that they want without fearing the feds. If successful, Utah could serve as an example and other states may then follow.
