Guilty

Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

US currency is legal tender for all debts, public and private.

80% of all currency contains trace amounts of cocaine

Possession of a trace amount of cocaine on currency in your pocket is a felony, regardless of how the cocaine got on the currency.

You are required to use our money, but you are prohibited from using our money.  Catch 22.  Look, people, that book was satire, not a guide to public policy.  Fix the law.

Joe Doakes

To much of our administrative class, “everyone is an inadvertent felon” is a feature, not a bug.

  1. If you print your own currency than you know exactly where it’s been. I suppose that the only way to be completely safe then is to only accept coins as change from the cashiers. 😉

  2. Again Im reminded of the classic meme I use these days on a daily basis basically. There’s a picture of George Orwell in the background with the text “I wrote 1984 as a warning, not a fucking playbook.”
