Authorities have passed a law banning the cultivation of their own food and large fines for violators

Australian Prime Minister Dan Andrews passes a law banning growing your own food.

A bill to amend the 2022 Agriculture Act has passed its second reading in Parliament. The reason for the change is biosecurity.

Expanding the powers of law enforcement, searching property and persons without a warrant, increasing fines from $1,800 to $10,000 for providing false or misleading information are all part of the new bill.

Authorized officers will no longer need the consent of the landowner to remove samples, livestock (animals) and documents.

Authorized officials will no longer be required to present an official ID. There are severe penalties for obstructing access to their land.
