We Sleep All Night and We Curtail Global Maple Syrup Production All Day

“It’s like OPEC. We’re not producing all the maple syrup in the world. But by producing 70 to 78 percent, we have the ability to adjust the quantity that is in the marketplace.” —Simon Trépanier, acting general manager of the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers. [NYT]

@Tommmcatt May Just Have Some MJ In His System As Well, So What?: I want to live in a country that amasses a strategic stockpile of maple syrup rather than a strategic stockpile of nukes or landmines.
