'It's hard to fathom how we have come to a point where natural, unadulterated, and wholesome foods are forbidden, while foods containing concoctions of untested synthetic chemicals and toxic pesticide residues are permitted; but such is the case when it comes to raw milk and a number of other artisanal foods.
In support of food freedom, two members of the US Congress recently sat down for an "illegal" meal. As reported by The Independent Journal:
"Reps. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) and Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) ate their meal... at Jezebel's, a Denver restaurant.
The reason they aren't under criminal investigation, though? Because they were in Colorado, and while the dishes they ate are against the law to buy, they brought the food themselves.
Their meal of 'forbidden and restricted foods,' as Polis called it, was to bring attention to federal rules they hope to change that limit how food can be sold."'
