You pull into the back of the parking lot where you've agreed to engage in 'the deal'. You flash your headlights twice - the signal that the coast is clear. You get out of your car, a buyer hands over some money, and you hand over the goods. The transaction is done.
You walk back to your car but before you can even open the door, the sound of sirens stuns you and flashing lights almost leave you blinded. You're now surrounded, and all you can hear is "Come Out With Your Hands Up!"
As the undercover cop approaches you with cuffs in hand you ask, "Officer, what did I do?". He responds, "You've been selling raw milk."
Sure, this is a bit exaggerated but something along these lines happened to a family in Springfield, Missouri who has been the target of state officials for "illegally trafficking" raw milk! You've got to be kidding me. NaturalNews reports that the state of Missouri has been spending tax dollars for this undercover investigation. Two daughters of the Bechard family were caught on two occasions selling a gallon of milk that came from a cow named 'Misty'.
Let it be known that these girls (in case you didn't catch this) weren't selling sugar-ridden tea flavored water and passing it off as having anti-oxidant powers NOR were they selling bars labeled with "nutri" and "grain" in their name whose first ingredient is high fructose corn syrup which has proven time and time again to push people into a state of hyperinsuliemia and fatty liver and hypercholesterolemia and... *ahhhHh*
