Socially: Pick up and delivery of raw milk causes gathering of like-minded individuals with the same approach toward life.
Environmentally: Raw milk is responsible, local agriculture that reduces our carbon imprint on our planet.
Safety: Raw milk farmed and consumed by conscientious individuals poses no more of a threat to consumers than does pasteurized milk or raw chicken sold in stores.
Healthy: Raw milk supports preventative healthcare, reducing the burden on the state by contributing to reduced allergies, obesity, asthma, stomach ailments, etc.
Dietary: Raw milk is the only ingredient suitable for certain dishes, nutritional drinks, and delectable treats.
Scientifically: Raw milk is full of nutrients, and has immune and health-promoting effects that are destroyed during pasteurization. Babies do not thrive well on pasteurized milk.
Constitutionally: Raw milk gives the people a reason to peaceably assemble, which is protected by the 1st Amendment.
The 14th Amendment, Section 1 states,
“No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
