China’s new underwater tunnel

States are making bank off of weed taxes
In general, the government likes to authorize businesses that will make them more money. The great news for the government is that taxing cannabis really pays off and is filling the state and local coffers. From The Hustle:
All that staying home was apparently good for the weed industry. In 2020, U.S. cannabis sales hit a record $17.5B, per Forbes. But a new report from the Marijuana Policy Project found that the states were also profiting. The 18 states that have legalized recreational cannabis have raked in $10.4B in tax revenue since 2014. A few examples: Alaska (2016) has generated $95M. Colorado, which kicked off legal adult-use sales in 2014, has collected $1.79B. And California (2018), the largest state by population, has collected $3.1B.
The report doesn’t include local tax revenues-but cities pull in money, too. Denver has generated $237.5M, and California’s West Hollywood sees itself as the future Amsterdam. It currently has 6 dispensaries in 1.8 square miles, generating $2.2M a year

Dad jokes and baby pandas
Dad Joke of the week:
My wife said I should do lunges to stay in shape.
That would be a big step forward.
Pandas in the snow-this link will work! Bad form on my part to lure you to a website with the promise of cute pandas and then I sent you to the 2022 Work Goals document! Boo-hiss! I truly apologize-it was a platform glitch and that was just rude to all of us. So here’s the 48 second heartwarming video of a snow-loving baby panda playing at the nation’s zoo: Pandas playing in the snow-link now working
