    N.J. student penny-protesters pardoned

    READINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. - Twenty-nine New Jersey students punished with two-day detentions after they used pennies to pay for their $2 lunches are getting a pardon.

    Readington, N.J., school Superintendent Jorden Schiff informed parents in an e-mail Sunday that he has rescinded the after-school detentions. They will only be restored if parents ask that their children serve them.........

    They have to accept those pennies.

    It is illegal for them to refuse to accept US currency of any kind, even stupid Sacagawea coins.

    Can't places refuse 50 or 100 dollar bills in the states? I know they can in Canada.

    That's simply because they don't have enough change in the register to give you change.
