Food sovereignty, aka Freedom

More and more voters are deciding they don’t need the government to “protect” them from delicious locally grown food. A ninth town in Maine has adopted a local ordinance stating that local foods are “exempt from licensure and inspection,” so long as the food is sold directly by the producer to a consumer.

The ordinance also makes it “unlawful for any law or regulation adopted by the state or federal government to interfere with the rights organized by this ordinance.”
