Do you think the right to drink raw milk can be compared to the right to have medicinal marijuana?

Raw milk has no substantial medicinal properties, while marijuana does. Raw milk can spread disease and bacteria, while properly grown marijuana does not. Raw milk, when collected improperly or from diseased cows, is a public health risk. And it's impossible for a mass-produced product to always be completely safe, and drinking uncleaned milk is not helping that statistic.

I think it compares to the right to have marijuana regardless of whether it's medicinal or not.

And yes, I do think people have the right to ingest whatever they want even if the government refuses to recognise that right. It's my body and my choice.

"Raw milk has no substantial medicinal properties"

Health benefits of Raw Milk

However, since raw milk's medicinal claims are really more preventative, whereas medicinal marijuana is used to treat specific symptoms, it's really not a great comparison.

As razzed said, the right to consume raw milk is better compared to the right to have marijuana in general.

Hey, why not let them drink their raw milk? It's not hurting anybody. Nobody ever got into a car accident because they were buzzing on raw milk.

You know, I was going to joke at first, but I thought about it and realized that they're both equally difficult to find around here.. Which isn't that hard if you know where to look. Silly comparison, though. One based in paranoia and the other in myth.
