Metatron rant

IHNJ*

I happened to look at the Wikipedia entry for the United States (long story) and raised my eyebrow at the following...

The country's leading cash crop is marijuana, despite federal laws making its cultivation and sale illegal.[74]


I was surprised. Still surprised. People joke that coffee is the second biggest crop of Colombia, but we have no room to talk.

Here's a stereotypical (per Republicans) Democratic thought: What if all that was taxed? What could we afford? What would the national budget look like?

Anyway, I blame stream of consciousness surfing for this post. I really shouldn't do that at work.

*IHNJ=I have no joke
