Taking away our RIGHT to healthy food

http://organicmel.wordpress.com/2010/08/23/powered-by-us-senate-bill-s510-allows-hls-to-raid-your-backyard-and-organic-food-stores-on-gunpoint/

Read this! A friend posted this to my facebook. I read the article and I am ANGRY. I can't believe they would pass this! I don't want to believe that our government would make it illegal to grow our own food. Please people, read this, do research, share it with everyone, post back here. I am writing letters to my representatives in Washington right NOW. I recommend you do the same. They will only get away with this if we do nothing. I am researching it right now, it seems outlandish and I need proof.

  • I sent emails to my senators asking for more info on the bill. I also told them if it is real, I oppose it.

  • Near as I can tell growing your own food for personal(or shared) use isn't effected. It does seem likely that some small farms, farmers markets, etc. will be effected if they're if they're forced to pay fees, licenses, etc. as I'm sure that will discourage some from selling their produce.

  • That is truly appalling. Thank goodness that isn't the case here in Britain.
