West Virginia Governor Vetoes Raw Milk Bill

West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin vetoed a bill that would have allowed consumers access to raw milk through herdshare agreements, which the state Senate had earlier approved.

Governor Tomblin’s veto message used the tired argument that allowing people to drink raw milk “would pose a serious risk to public health.” West Virginia House Delegate Kelli Sobonya (R – Cabell) called the veto shortsighted, preventing West Virginia from “…joining a majority of other states who support farm food freedom.”

  1. Your governor Toblin apparently knows nothing about the raw milk subject.My entire family has been drinking raw milk for years now and we couldn’t feel better. It is just a tactic by government to control and tax things they have absolutle no right to. Their arguement is for the most part a fabrication,but lies are the norm anymore up there.

  2. I hope it goes through,, and people may find raw milk more of a benefit than adulterated store bought milk. My dad is 88 and in that era, everyone drank raw milk. Whole and wholesome, the way GOD created it to be.. until man got his hands on it , and destroyed it.

  3. WHAT a JOKE ! Governor Tomblin’s veto message used the tired argument that allowing people to drink raw milk “would pose a serious risk to public health.” ,, Raw milk poses a serious health risk ? compared to drugs and chemical induced tobacco ?
