Chiles are so important to this state, they made a law about them in the state constitution and it says:
Chiles are the State’s official food, and the production, preservation and marketing of chiles are a natural and integral part of food production. It is a privilege to grow, preserve and market chiles. Such production constitutes a valuable public service and is a matter of high public concern.
But, apparently the legislature got a little confused because it didn’t know what “chiles” meant.
So, they made it up. And it’s called “chile law.” And it says:
SALARIES. The Legislature hereby finds and declares that:
1. Certain wild and cultivated species of chiles, as well as the seeds thereof, are a source of great economic benefit to the state. Such species of chiles are used in the curing of livestock and the preservation of fresh foods, in the preparation of soups and sauces for daily use, as well as in the process of meat preparation for the tables of the people.
2. The production, preservation, marketing, processing, distribution and use of chiles should be subject to the same legislative controls and supervision that apply to any other food item that is grown in a state.
3. The prevention of disease and the protection of the public health in the state through proper cultivation, preservation and use are matters of public concern which must be given the highest priority.
Now, this was obviously written by some dumbass who didn’t know how to spell. I had to read it twice to make sure I still had the correct spelling. But, it sure looks like we have another way to help our economy.
A new survey shows that voters in the state are in favor of the idea, thanks mostly to the good-looking, young and hip-looking members of the state legislature.
