    Default Raw Deal? (Raw millk sales)

    Katherine Paul and Ronnie Cummins
    20 December 2019

    How is it that poisons like glyphosate and chlorpyrifos can be sold—and sprayed on food—almost everywhere in the U.S., but 22 states prohibit sales of raw milk?
    In fact, you almost need a law degree to figure out the jumbled mix of state laws governing raw milk sales.
    Why do known carcinogens get a pass from U.S. regulatory agencies, but raw milk gets a raw deal?
    Congress has never passed a ban on raw milk. Yet the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has used its regulatory authority to raid farms and prosecute farmers for distributing raw milk.

    Read more, see legislative sponsors and TAKE ACTION: Ask Your Member of Congress to support your right to choose raw milk by supporting H.R. 5410, the Interstate Milk Freedom Act.

    The laws on the sale of raw milk vary greatly, depending on whether it's bought in a store (retail sale) or whether it's an on-farm sale. 12 states allow retail; 16 states allow on-farm sales; another 8 states permit "herd share agreements," where people buy ownership in a cow from the farmer and then are entitled to the milk it produces. And, 4 states permit raw milk sales for pets. How many "new" pet owners sprung up in those states?? Lol. See more details here:

    'Funny' you should mention that, as I have heard and read so often of people that bought their pharma from vets, which was otherwise beyond their financial means and ability in a drug store pharmacy. I had/have a dozen small squeeze tubes of Pfizer terramycin eye ointment stored in the fridge for many years that we had purchased at half price from a mail order vet supply, to be used for equine pink-eye, (which has never yet happened here). A friend of mine had some eye health issues and used that eye ointment product that I had donated to him, with good results.

    If one lives in one of those raw dairy restrictive states like NJ, and if it is convenient and cost-effective, they can travel to an adjacent state like PA, where it is legal to sell raw milk one way or another, and then "smuggle" that raw milk back home again, just like a bootlegger smuggling "White Lightning", lol
