Cold hard cash. It’s good everywhere you go, right? You can use it to pay for anything.
But that’s not the case here in Louisiana now. It’s a law that was passed during this year’s busy legislative session.
House bill 195 basically says those who buy and sell second hand goods cannot use cash to make those transactions, and it flew so far under the radar most businesses don’t even know about it.
Seriously, it says it right there on the Federal Reserve note: “this note is legal tender for all debts, public and private.” Seems pretty straightforward to me. Not to mention the fact that having some financial transactions be effectively untraceable is actually a feature, not a bug. Yeah, it’s open for abuse. Many things are.
