No: I was raised drinking raw milk from my family’s own cow, and I love it. However, when you buy milk from an unknown source, you do not have knowledge of how the cow or milk product was handled. Pasteurization laws came about because of diseases that were passed from cow milk to humans. I would love to trust and believe that all human producers of raw milk took proper care of the cow and her product, but alas … this is not to be. Therefore, I would have to vote “No” to the unlimited sale of raw milk without some kind of safeguards.
Yes: I have been drinking raw milk ever since I can remember. There would have to be certain rules in place.
Yes: Raw milk should be legal in all states.
Yes: It should be legal to buy raw milk in all 50 states.
Yes: With proper testing for the farmer, to ensure the product is clean, yes, I am in favor.

Yes: Please legalize the sale of raw milk! My husband would not be alive if it was not for raw milk! My husband, our daughter and I greatly suffered from different allergies before consuming raw milk. We cannot go back to the white chalk unrightfully called milk that made us sick in the first place! Legalize raw milk sales.
No: No way! Just asking for one more way for those who want to stop animal agriculture to shoot us down. If one case of spoiled milk gets to the consumer, the media will blow it way out of proportion. Why give them a chance?
Yes: The sale of raw milk should be legal in all states!

Yes: Ultra-pasteurized milk hurts sales. Many consumers feel its nutrients are less available. I’m vacationing in Paris, and a chef I spoke to says he doesn’t like the taste. They keep it on the dry good shelves in France. Somehow the idea of drinking a “fresh cold glass of milk” doesn’t hold when you can store it with the laundry soap. Ultra pasteurization may be nice for processors and retailers, but it doesn’t suit many consumers.
