It seems that some of those independent Yankees up in New England have decided that the nanny-state has nanny-ed enough.

Sedgwick passed an ordinance that gives its citizens the right “to produce, sell, purchase, and consume local foods of their choosing,” regulations be damned. The ordinance includes raw milk, meats that are slaughtered locally, all produce, and just about anything else you might imagine. Furthermore, the town has declared that interference from the state or federal government is illegal. Yes!!
