HR City Council Outlines Intention For Marijuana Tax

The Hood River City Council approved a resolution outlining what they would intended to do with revenues from a tax on marijuana sales that will be on the November ballot.  Councilors had already put the three percent tax on commercial retail non-medical sales of marijuana, but City Manager Steve Wheeler said the resolution clarifies where the money would go:  primarily to public safety and public education about drug use.  Cities and counties are allowed to seek the marijuana sales tax as part of the ballot measure passed in Oregon two years ago legalizing recreational marijuana.
