Morning Brew's Matty Merritt is reporting on Florida's lab grown meat ban. 

Florida has become the first state to ban lab-grown meat, citing concerns over its impact on the traditional ranching and agriculture sectors, which are significant contributors to the state's economy. This decision reflects broader tensions between emerging cultivated meat companies and established meat industry players. The industry, which has attracted considerable investment and media interest, faces opposition characterized by disparaging terms like "fake meat" and regulatory challenges pushed by powerful meat lobbying groups. Despite this, not all industry members agree with the ban; larger meat processors and suppliers see the prohibition as limiting consumer choice and hindering innovation, with some actively investing in alternative protein ventures.
