If you’re too lazy to Google it (you jerk), here is a decent summary of the horse meat legality changes in the U.S. If you’re even to lazy to click out (god damn you what happened to you in your life to make you such a shit?), the basic deal is that while I think it was always legal to eat horse meat (or prepare it I guess in restaurants or other food-processing places) in the states, until now it wasn’t legal to have horse slaughterhouses on U.S. soil. Interestingly, the slaughterhouse ban was a fairly new law, I think only existing after 2007. I’m not sure what was so different about 20o7 than now in regards to it being okay to kill something for food, but I’m sure it had something to do with politicians needing to say words so they could stay in office.
