Today's word: BLUEBERRY TAX
Theme for this fortnight: TAXES

According to Maine, the production of wild blueberries is one of the most important agricultural industries in their state, making it necessary to protect it with a tax.
Without a tax, the precious blueberries of Maine could be over harvested. The state of Maine gets a penny and a half per pound, keeping the blueberry business in check, so that plants are able to thrive. This separate cent is applied to every pound of blueberries sold, on top of regular taxes.
