Under the tremendous stress of California's financial crisis, governor Arnold Schwarzenegger backslid into his former routine use of marijuana. The Governator asked the legislature Thursday to consider an excise tax on pot in an attempt to see a black-light at the end of the tunnel for beleaguered West Coast city and town budgets.
In an exclusive interview with D Pressing News, the governor of America's largest state budget lay on a large futon in his office, listening to a Grateful Dead CD and described the advantages of his idea.
"I think da whole cuntry shood consida dis idea, man. I'm tired of issuing I.O.U's to every dude ve owe money. I vas pondering da problem this morning and a lyric hit me like a...the singa vas...den Maria brought in some nachos and...I thought it vould be cool...you know...it vould be cool to pump up the state coffers."
With no other relief for the layoffs that have plagued California cities state assemblyman actor Jeff "The Dude" Bridges introduced a bill in Sacramento keep pot legalized. "Why not tax it? It's already was legal, isn't it?" said The Dude.
