Marijuana Dealers Feel Pinch of Falling Dollar
DEBORAH AMOS, host:
Here's another group that's feeling the pinch from the falling dollar - marijuana dealers in Canada. Our last word in business today is skunk bud. You don't smoke the stuff and we should point out it is illegal, but with the U.S. dollar falling and Canada's rising, Canadian pot exporters are seeing their profits soar. That's making potheads in this country pretty happy. They also have the weak Mexican peso. We hear the Mexican-grown stuff is pretty cheap, and that's pushed the price down.
