I have a short term memory problem. This is one of those quizzes that I think I have the answer to one or two questions, but now that they aren't in front of me, I can't answer.

3. What U.S. city will be the first to tax marijuana?

I'm willing to take a stab at this. Washington, DC or San Francisco?

Although technically DC is a country of it's own.
