This might not be a common scenario in your household, but it could be if you live near a state border and travel to a farm for fresh food and dairy.
You go to your farm source and pick up your rich-tasting nutrient dense white gold. Plus, all the non-tampered with veggies - straight from the ground. What a great buy! Drinking raw milk has given you strength and energy - you've never felt better or more grateful. You drive back home crossing the state line. You've just broken the law!
But the consequences fare much worse for the farmer who produced those goods. They are heavily watched, harassed and raided by various government agencies, including health departments sometimes accompanied by the cops.
Mark Mcaffe of Organic Pastures Dairy once posed this rhetorical question in response to the claim that interstate transfer bans were about public safety: How can a product considered safe in one state suddenly be toxic as soon as it crosses a state line?
