New Tennessee State Currency?

Just stumbled across an interesting article about a Senator attempting or at least looking into State Currency for TN, anyone else as amazed as I am? Sorry if this is old news, just saw it today.

Utah house of reps. makes gold and silver coins legal currency

http://www.americanprinciplesproject.org/blogs/gold-currency-bill-passed-by-utah-house.html

 In an unprecedented move, the Utah House of Representatives has passed a bill to make federal gold and silver coins legal currency.

...

“People sense that in the era of quantitative easing and zero interest rates, something has gone haywire with our monetary policy,” said Mr. Bell. “If one state recognizes gold as a valid currency, I think it would embolden people not just in other states but in Washington.”

Deutsche Mark (DM) in german area possible?

I wonder, wether it isn't illegal / unlawful in Germany to use another / parallel currency. The Tennessee Senator isn't allowed to introduced a currency other than the Dollar, I believe.

Is there any knowledge concerning just working local currencies in the U.S.? ... maybe at a small scale?

Greetings from Germany

It is nice to hear from a member not in the US.  We need other perspectives.  There are several threads here dealing with alternative currencies that you can find via the search function.  In the US it is legal to issue other money as long as it is NOT dollars.  Creating your own dollars gets you a long vacation with room and board at government expense, in other words, prison.
