Sorry, stoners. You can't save Michigan's crumbling roads.
Now that Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's proposal to fix the roads has hit a dead-end, some residents are asking whether the solution is the state's new marijuana tax.
The short answer: Not a chance.
“Why don’t we use to the money from legal weed to fix the roads?”@GovWhitmer’s response: “Every man, woman, and child would have to buy $2,500 worth of weed a year. If we were consuming that much, would any of us really care about the damn roads anymore?” #FTDR pic.twitter.com/Tr7jirDin6— Carter (@carteroselett) May 13, 2019
