A problem I would see is the danger of normalizing cannibalism. I think the pool of people willing to donate their corpses for human consumption would remain pretty low. But it would be enough to start a production process for converting people into food. And once this process exists, there could be pressure to expand it beyond volunteers. How are consumers going to know if the "soylent green" they're buying was produced from true volunteers or from people who were coerced into volunteering? Or just grabbed off the street and thrown into the vat?
It's semi serious.

I guess more specifically, I was wondering if it was currently legal for someone to have their own body disposed of that way. Not be eaten in the wild as carrion, but processed for food.
