Lane County Board Moves Ahead With Pot Tax
The Lane County Board of Commissioners voted 4 to 1 Tuesday to move forward with a local tax on recreational marijuana. The tax would be conditional on Oregon voters approving Measure 91, which would legalize recreational pot. Commissioner Pete Sorenson was the only no vote. The board had been considering taxing medical marijuana as well but decided not to do so.
The board will hold public hearing on the proposed ordinance at its regular meeting next Tuesday.
