Both Hood River And The Dalles To Ask Voters For Marijuana Tax

Both the City Councils of The Dalles and Hood River have voted to put proposals for a three percent tax on recreational marijuana sales on the November ballot.  State law allows municipalities to establish the tax with voter approval.  Hood River City Manager Steve Wheeler says Hood River councilors want to use the proceeds in two areas:  public safety funding and drug education.  The Dalles City Council had similar thoughts, noting the potential increased law enforcement costs and a need to provide more education to the youth of the community.
