Unfortunately, the co-op people were breaking the law, so too bad.
However, the laws are fucked up. If people want to drink raw milk (and there are lots of reasons people would want to drink unpasteurized milk), they should be able to.
So, as whiny as this video is, hopefully it will draw a little scrutiny to this issue and the unhealthy practices of big agriculture.

What are the reasons a person would want to drink raw milk? Genuinely curious, all I've ever seen are a bunc hof bullshit claims about how it has "nutrients" that cure diseases.
I grew up on a farm and drank raw milk all the time. It tastes better than pasteurized milk.
The main reason is that it contains lactase. Lactase is necessary to digest lactose. Pasteurizing milk destroys the bacteria that produce lactase and the lactase itself (or so they claim), and also removes vitamins from the milk (this is true). Hence, lactose intolerance becomes epidemic.
what baleen said, plus the more exposure to heat and light, the less vitamins
Not to mention all the delicious listeriosis, brucellosis and tuberculosis people are missing out on! I'll take pasteurized milk over the risk of encephalitis, disfiguring spinal infections, and recurring febrile depression any day. What a killjoy I am!
You're really scared of milk.
"Raw" milk is typically harmful because Cargill feeds their cows Chinese newspapers and apple cores instead of shit cows normally eat like Snickers and onion rings.
Raw milk does not contain a significant amount of lactase.
Vitamin loss is a bit of a canard. You do lose a lot of the vitamin C, but milk is not a primary source of vitamin C in human diets. You lose a little B12 and B1, A and D stick around.
By 'significant' I mean 'observable'.
I was just representing them in this case, I don't believe in raw food histrionics in general.
Dairy products are junk food.
spoken like a weak lactose-intolerant, genetically inferior runt.
I would say fuck the raw food kids, but this is a waste of time as far as the FDA goes. Probably just an easy target to pad out their portfolio of successes. Just let the idiots be.
But other than that: epidemic of lactose intolerance? What the fuck are you talking about.
While I'm not an expert, I'd guess that raw foods have a higher risk of containing diseases which are a health threat to the food supply in general.
They would counter by saying the chemicals used to grow, process and preserve food are just as bad or worse. At the end of the day, they feel good eating this way, let them eat this way.
The only people who would get sick from these foods are hippies, and the more of them who die, the better. Let them keep their milk.
Finally! I was waiting for someone to protect me from this raw food outrage.
I've had milk straight from the cow. It tastes exactly like how cows smell.
Why would you drink warm cow's milk before its been separated from the cream? That's gross.
Please post a video of you drinking milk from the cow
Yeah no worries on running the national debt up to 20 trillion dollars, it's time to worry about hippies drinking disgusting cow boob juice.

How could you get upset about an internet video when people are starving to death in Africa?!
This guy's court costs should cover some of it.
Those starving Africans are free from oppressive food sanitation laws. The terrorists in their country probably don't force people to buy pasteurized milk. Lucky bastards probably don't have to worry about vaccination programs or fluoridated tap water, either.
I'd emigrate, uh, if I could.

A lot of claims about raw milk are bullshit (including all this enzyme stuff), but it apparently does improve the drinker's immune system, probably through regular exposure to low levels of bacteria.
Needs a "first world problems" tag.
Lactose Intolerance gone haywire
Louis Pasteur was one of history's greatest monsters.
Also, Lela Buttery.
First The Man cracks down on hard motherfuckers partying on Hollywood Blvd, now they seize raw food from upper middle class white folks on Venice Beach! California is under siege! WAKE UP, PEOPLE, BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!!!
Hey, I have an idea. How about you don't fucking drink milk from an animal? Yeah..it's a pretty radical idea, seeing as how cow's milk is meant to RAISE BABY COWS and turn them into big ol' adult cows and is meant for BABY COWS.
I mean, seriously, how fucking stupid is the argument over what to do to cow's milk to make it better to drink. It wasn't meant for human consumption..maybe that should clue you in a tad bit.
Fuck these hippies.
