Time to Party in the Marshall Islands!

Where?

The tiny island nation of the Marshall Islands, about a third of the size of Chicago with only 62,500 people, is looking at trying to raise tourist revenue by any means possible. So what's the appeal of a country that's 2500 miles away from Hawaii and difficult to get to?

Cocaine.

Yes, that fine white powder made famous by Al Pacino in Scarface, among other things! CBS Breaking News indicates that President Jurelang Zedkaia has legalized the use of cocaine by executive order. That's something you don't hear of every day.

Granted, I don't know how much of a tourism industry boost this will add to the Marshall Islands, but when you're facing a crisis, I applaud the chutzpah of President Zedkaia in rolling the Hard Six.
