I've wondered whether we'll eventually wind up having to do
private clubs to distribute good produce, like is currently the case
with raw milk.
I sure hope not.

Many many years ago, when I was I think about twelve, I read a science
fiction story in which only synthetic food was legal; the protagonist of
the story had gone to something rather like a speakeasy to get a meal of
real food, and got busted.
The story made little sense to me at the time, but it stuck with me,
though I don't remember the author's name or the title. I think it was
probably meant as a satire on drug laws; I doubt anybody writing in the
early 60's or before was considering the possibility that it might be a
real problem with food. -- though I suddenly realized just now, wasn't
that time around when raw milk was becoming illegal? Maybe the author
was a dairy farmer, after all. (My family weren't farmers, I wasn't then
following farm issues at all.)
