- Call us clueless, but we had no idea that Tennessee had a “Crack Tax,” which allows the state to tax illegal drug dealers anonymously on their product. If the dealer is later busted without the special “Thank you for paying taxes on your crack” stamp, then not only were they just busted for drug dealing, but they also have to pay back the taxes. At any rate, the Tennessee Supreme Court just ruled this law unconstitutional today so our drugs are officially tax-free. [Tennessean]
