Springfield Prepares For Medical Marijuana; May Impose Special Tax On Those Operations

Springfield is preparing for the eventual arrival of medical marijuana businesses. 


Mayor Mike Houston says the state’s pilot program could allow one cannabis growing operation and two dispensaries for the drug in the city.  Zoning requirements mean those businesses would have to be located downtown. 


Houston says there could be some backlash against businesses producing and selling pot, even for medical reasons, but ultimately thinks it fits with the city’s status as a regional medical center.  Houston says the city could also seek to impose sales and other taxes on those marijuana operations.
