Today, the US Senate passed the Patriot Act for Food, S510, by a vote of 73 to 25. We can expect to watch the raids on natural foods increase, and we can expect continued malicious prosecution of growers, like the 2-acre gardener in Georgia.
We can also expect private food arrangements to go underground, so as to opt out of the increased rules and regulations we can expect from the FDA.
