As City Prepares for Medical Marijuana, Houston Contemplates Tax


Medical marijuana may provide relief for local patients with serious conditions… and it may provide revenue for the City of Springfield.

 

Mayor Mike Houston says it is possible the city could seek to assess a special tax on medical marijuana transactions in the city… in addition to the sales taxes the city would normally collect.

 

It’s not known yet how much that tax would add to the cost of a dose of the drug for local patients.

 

The city is working on zoning rules for cannabis cultivation and dispensing centers… rules that would probably require those centers to be located downtown.
