Asheville Businesses Accept New Money

Is new money coming out?

85 businesses in Asheville may think so. They are accepting an alternative currency called the Liberty Dollar. The dollars have a supposed face value of 20 dollars, but its all illegal according to authorities. Customers must use money that is minted and printed by the US Government, which these Liberty Dollars are not. It could carry a fine, or even jail time, but so far no one in Asheville has been charged with an offense.
