Anyone who's worked in the food services industry knows how impossible it is in some states to fulfill all the regulations required to get the license. The regulations multi-million dollar corporations lobbied to have put in place because they can afford to meet them and they know alternative, arguably better forms of emergent business, have no chance. The regulations make sense when you go into a factory farm in Indiana but not when you have a farmer milking 100 head of cattle to sell to his community. It`s like taking the rules for football and applying them to hockey; they`re different games and it doesn`t work. If we`re going to argue for regulations there needs to be 2 tiered regulations; a set for farms pushing out genetically modified products and another set for those who farm differently.
