“Where’s the beef?”  DeSantis signs legislation boycotting fake meat

 Florida has a strong beef industry. At a press conference in Hardee County (a top cattle county), DeSantis explained:

“We’re fighting back against an ideology that ultimately wants to eliminate meat production in the U.S. and around the globe. In the state of Florida we’ve put down the marker very clearly; we stand with agriculture. We stand with the cattle ranchers. We stand with our farmers because we understand it’s important for the backbone of the state. It’s important for our culture. It’s important for our heritage to say take your fake, lab-grown meat elsewhere. We’re not doing that in the state of Florida.”

According to the Farm Journal, lab-grown meat is currently only approved to be sold in the U.S. (of course) and Singapore. Italy banned lab-grown meat in February.

Well, other states? You guys coming, or are you going to eat those cricket-dogs?
