Article: The Crack Tax

Every time I think I've heard it all, something new pops up and challenges that belief. Apparently, the state of Tennessee has a 'Crack Tax'. All persons in posession of a certain amount of an illegal controlled substance are expected to pay taxes for it and affix tax stamps to them. There's even a picture of the tax stamp with the article.

The story mentions some dude who got nailed for bringing in two tons of marijana. He was fined 1.1 million dollars by the TN Department of Revenue for not paying taxes on the contraband.

Ripley's Believe It.....or Not.
