Here Is The Salary At Which Money Won't Make you Any Happier In Each State "Money can only buy happiness up to a point. But just how much you need to get to that threshold really depends on where you live, according to a new analysis by Doug Short, vice president of research at investment group Advisor Perspectives."

Food by State

Every State in the USA, Ranked By Its Food and Drink "During America Week, a parlor game emerged among our editors, in which we discussed what state we'd want to eat and drink in for the rest of our lives if we couldn't move anywhere else.

Marijuana by State

Pot luck "CALL it reefer madness. On July 8th Washington became the second state after Colorado to offer recreational pot-smokers a chance to buy weed legally at a local store. Marijuana is still illegal in most of America. But there are substantial activities towards more liberal policies.

Oregon and Alaska will vote on legalisation in November; Floridians will decide on permitting medical use. President Barack Obama has chosen to take a hand’s-off approach to the issue of legalisation in Washington and Colorado. Yet if a drug hawk were to succeed President Obama in 2016, a clampdown on pot could well be revived."

Minimum Wage by State

New Analysis Debunks Claim That A Higher Minimum Wage Kills Job Growth "A higher minimum wage doesn't have to kill jobs.
