Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law on Wednesday that bans the sale of lab-grown meat in the state as part of his administration’s commitment to having a “vibrant agriculture industry.”

Speaking at a press conference, DeSantis said that this bill was different than legislation he has signed in the past to protect the industry because this focuses on protecting it from “acts of man” that are rooted in an “ideological agenda” that wants to blame ranchers for climate change.

“These will be people who will lecture the rest of us about things like global warming, they will say that you can’t drive a internal combustion engine vehicle, they’ll say that agriculture is bad, meanwhile, they’re flying to Davos and their private jets,” he said. “This is really a vision of imposing restrictions on freedoms for everyday people while these elites are effectively pulling the strings, calling the shots, and doing whatever the hell they want to do in their own lives.”

DeSantis said that policies and vision that the World Economic Forum has for the world is “dead on arrival in the state of Florida.”

“We have fought it through standing up against things like Central Bank Digital Currency, where they want to be able to control your money; we fought against it by banning the Chinese Communist Party from purchasing land in the state of Florida; we have fought it by putting an end to woke banks denying or canceling financial services for Florida, just based on their political opinions; and we’ve also protected Floridians from government tracking of credit card transactions related to the purchase of firearms and ammunition,” he continued. “I think what they’re looking to do is create a social credit system. That’s what they have in China. And so your ability to participate in the economy, access credit, will be circumscribed by your ideological positions and your political positions.”

DeSantis said that the extreme agenda of the WEF, which includes having people eat bugs, has not taken root in Florida and that it’s also struggled to gain traction in many other states as well.


“They want to basically eliminate meat, they want to eliminate cattle, they want to eliminate chickens, and they want to create protein in laboratories,” he said. “So it’s fake, essentially, lab-created meat, and their goal is to get to a point where you will not be raising cattle, where you will not be developing meat like we’ve been doing for hundreds and hundreds of years in the State of Florida.”

DeSantis said the notion that they just want to put the fake meat on the market and let the free market take its course is false.

“That’s not really what they’re going for because they know if that was put out there to compete with with normal beef that they would lose,” he said. “So what they want to do is put that out there and then say, ‘Well, wait a minute, you can do this in a lab. You don’t need to do cattle, you don’t need to do all this, so why don’t you just phase all that out? That’s ultimately the goal. Now they’re not at the point where they’re going to execute that today. But I think part of being good stewards of these industries, of the state, of the public well being, is to think of forward and head off threats before they even come.”
