Local Taco Profits Skyrocket on Marijuana Legalization
SEATTLE - Fast food taco vendors are rejoicing this morning as the nation's first law legalizing the non-medical use of marijuana went into effect.
"We've seen an 800% increase in sales just this morning," said Jack Baum, owner of "Uncle Jack's Tacos," a popular food truck. "You can smell money in the air and get a substantial contact buzz."
"I haven't seen money like this since the Tom Petty concert," said Juan Mendez, owner of "Uncle Juan's Tacos and Burritos," a popular local food truck vendor. "People are literally throwing money into the van to get a chicken burrito. I've had to raise prices so I don't run out of ingredients before noon, and nobody even noticed!"
Uncle Juan told IRREVERENT that most of the profits will be used to purchase a new food truck, and employ an additional four workers, doubling his existing staff.
