Is staining a raised bed garden unhealthy?
"I've already stained a raised bed vegetable garden and now wonder if that was a poor choice. Can the stain leech into the vegetables? Should I line it with something to prevent this from happening and if so what should I use to line it? "

It's generally not recommended to use stain on  raised beds for growing food crops. You can line the stained timbers with a heavy plastic to keep any leachate from getting into the soil.
