Crack Tax?

Ok, the folks in Tennessee must really be on Crack.

Apparently last year they instituted a Crack Tax that brought in more than $2.0MM USD last year.

The basis is Drug Dealers are supposed to pay taxes on their wares, somehow they're able to pay their taxes confidentially and they get a stamp......and all of the money goes to help fighting drugs.

But here's the funny part, if someone gets busted for selling drugs and they DON'T have the stamp they get busted for not paying taxes either.

This has got to be the craziest thing I've heard in a long time.
