Legalize Raw Milk in Michigan

      Ada, MI

This is an issue of freedom and liberty. Every adult citizen has the right to purchase unhealthy items such as cigarettes, alcohol, candy and junk food, so every citizen should be entitled to the right to determine if they would like to buy and consume healthy, clean raw milk from a local farmer. Currently this is illegal in Michigan and other states and is a violation of our basic rights.

As a Michigan citizen and voter, I ask that you represent me by enacting legislation to change this law and give me my freedom of choice.

      If you can buy raw meat, eggs, etc (with the choice to cook it or not, despite the risk of bacteria) then you should be able to buy raw milk- which has scientifically proven medical benefits (such as healthy bacteria- the same that people rave about in yogurt!) American is supposed to be a FREE country!!! This is not governed in many other countries and it should not be governed here!

      We should be free to choose the foods we buy from which farmers.

      My family and I are proud to eat raw dairy and will continue to do so by leasing a cow share. However, cow shares should not be necessary to have access to the health benefits of raw dairy. Pasturization destroys nearly every beneficial aspect of raw dairy in its natural state. Residents of Michigan should have the right to purchase and consume raw dairy if they so choose.

      If Americans have the right to buy smoke 2 packs of cigarettes a day, down 6 beers in an hour, and eat 5 Big Macs for lunch, they should be able to buy raw milk.
