Question of the Week – Millionaires and Tobacco

Posted by romeethredge on December 20, 2013

Yes, the north Florida town of Quincy had a banker at Quincy State Bank,  Mr. Pat Munroe, who encouraged folks to buy Coca Cola stock when it first went public which turned out to be a very good time, it was 1919. The value went up and they had many “Coca Cola millionaires” in this farming community that grew a lot of tobacco. “The Leaf”, from tobacco leaf,was and is a theater in downtown Quincy and was important to the community and has been renovated with benevolent donations from the millionaires, it has been told.

Now for this week’s question: What is this weed I found in a pasture and is it anything to worry about?
