Should The FDA Be Armed?
May 29, 2012
Last week, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) proposed to stop the FDA from sending out its own armed agents to make warrantless arrests, Reason.com reports. "I don’t think it’s a good idea to be arming bureaucrats to go on the farm to, with arms, to stop people from selling milk from a cow," Paul said. His amendment (which also would have protected speech about prune juice) failed. Only fifteen Republicans voted for it -- and no Democrats.
Minnesota has been prosecuting people over raw milk; California recently imposed, then lifted, a quarantine on one raw-milk producer's products.
