CNN reports that states are digging deep to repair budgets that appear beyond hope. Republican Jack Murphy, a Georgia state Senator, proposed a “pole tax” that would have charged club patrons a $5 entrance fee.

Fortunately cooler heads prevailed, and the bill was voted down.
Now calling Mary Jane to the stage – because we know the hippy lettuce is probably next on the tax list!
