Taking On The State Over Raw Milk

You can sell raw milk in Oregon, but because of health concerns--the milk is not pasteurized--the state controls such sales tightly. 

For example, farms can't advertise the fact that they sell raw milk. 

And so a Willamette Valley farmer who put information about her raw milk sales on her website drew warnings from the state. 

And now Christine Anderson is suing the state over the advertising ban. 

The Institute for Justice is giving her legal assistance.  We visit with the dairy farmer and the attorney.
