09 Jun Oregon Legislature’s Big Marijuana Deal: It Means State Control and a 20% Tax
Legislative negotiators have tentatively agreed on a sweeping marijuana deal that could produce a 20 percent sales tax on recreational sales of pot.
Under the deal — which is still subject to change — the state could collect a 17 percent tax while localities could collect up to 3 percent.
The deal to allow local taxes is aimed at ending a standoff with cities and counties over just how much power they have to prohibit retail sales of both recreational and medical marijuana.
