DeSantis Bans Lab-Grown Meat

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) signed a bill that prohibits lab-grown meat in the state.

SB 1084 also preempts the regulation of electric vehicle charging stations to the state and forbids local governments from enacting their own policies.

“What we’re protecting here is the industry against acts of man,” DeSantis told reporters. “An ideological agenda that wants to finger agriculture as the problem, that views things like raising cattle as destroying our climate. These will be people who will lecture the rest of us about things like global warming […] meanwhile they’re flying to Davos in their private jets.”

“Those policies are dead on arrival in the state of Florida,” DeSantis added.

In a press release for the legislation, the governor said Florida is “fighting back against the global elite’s plan to force the world to eat meat grown in a petri dish or bugs to achieve their authoritarian goals. Our administration will continue to focus on investing in our local farmers and ranchers, and we will save our beef.”

DeSantis shared a flyer on social media describing various steps the state of Florida has taken to combat the goals of the global elite.

Florida is “punching back at the World Economic Forum’s plan to force the world to eat fake meat and bugs to achieve their authoritarian goals,” the handout reads, noting that the globalist organization wants humanity to believe consuming insects is “an overlooked source of protein and a way to battle climate change.”

The state has also passed legislation protecting farmlands from being purchased by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
