Default NZ : $50,000 fine for making unapproved herbal tea

Quote:
The health freedom of New Zealanders is under very serious threat, as the federal government there pushes to pass a bill known as the Natural Health Products Bill (NHPB), or Bill 324-1, that will bring the nation into compliance with the overbearing and authoritarian food and health restrictions found in Codex Alimentarius, the so-called world food code.

If passed, NHPB will combine with the equally-threatening New Zealand Food Bill (http://www.naturalnews.com) to make it essentially illegal for individuals to even prepare for themselves, let alone try to sell, herbal products and teas, vitamins and supplements, or any other natural products that are not explicitly approved by the government as acceptable.
Quote:
Similar to S. 510 and various other “food safety” legislation in the U.S., Bill 324-1 will hand over complete control of food to the New Zealand government, allowing bureaucrats there to decide what health products people are allowed to buy, sell, prepare, and even consume. Defying the universal, God-given right to choose one’s own food, Bill 324-1 represents a grossly-dictatorial and oppressive regulatory nightmare, in which individuals must get permission from Big Brother to maintain their own health.

“No more home-grown camomile tea to make you sleep better. No more practising of traditional Maori medicine without a government ticket, which can be denied or revoked. No more home-made Manuka oil to put on your cuts. No more using your granny’s remedies from the herb garden. None of this without permission, fees and rules, or you face massive fines and possibly jail.”
Quote:
Sections 37 and 38 of the Sanctions and penalties portion of Bill 324-1 specifically outline $50,000 penalties for individuals that “manufacture” or sell health products without a license, and $250,000 penalties for corporations that manufacture or sell health products without a license. And the definition of “manufacture” in these sections are so vague and all-inclusive that an individual preparing natural health remedies at home technically falls into this category.
