Would You Pay $1000 for a Kid's Book?
You might not want to let your little one put their peanut butter and jam hands on the pages of the children’s book shown here because Amazon.com shows it listed for $987.65. It’s Just a Plant follows little Jackie as she learns about marijuana from a farmer, a doctor, and others. The illustrated book is out of print (hence, the price tag) but you can read the beginning here.
As a sad statement on society, Amazon offers a list of books that customers who have purchased this item (presumably when it was in print and cheaper) have also bought and the list includes Visiting Day about a child visiting her father in prison. In It’s Only A Plant, little Jackie experiences the illegality up close.
Before he could even finish, two police officers drove up and told the men to turn around and put their hands up against the wall!
Jackie looked at an officer and asked him, “Mister, why are you arresting these people?”
“Young lady,” answered the policeman, “These men were smoking what I call grass, and that is against the law.”
“Marijuana isn’t against the law!” said Jackie.
“Yes.. it is,” he said slowly.
“Let me try to explain…”
Unfortunately, the whole book isn’t on line. If you need to read the rest….Got money?
