To whoever said money doesn't grow on trees
TOBACCO AS MONEY
Virginia, Maryland, and North Carolina used tobacco as currency throughout most of the colonial period. In 1619, the Virginia legislature rated high quality tobacco at three shillings and in 1642 made it legal tender. Nearly all business transactions in Maryland, including levies, were conducted in terms of tobacco. North Carolina used tobacco as money until the outbreak of the Revolution.
So, can money grow on trees? Yes, it can. Money did, does and will grow on trees. 🎄💸
