Houston's Medical Marijuana Tax Idea Goes Up In Smoke


Mayor Mike Houston’s idea of generating revenue by taxing medical marijuana sales in Springfield may be going up in smoke. 

 

Earlier this month Houston told 970 WMAY that he envisioned using home rule authority to assess an additional tax on medical pot. That would be on top of the sales tax that is already applied to drug sales.

 

But the state department of revenue says although that one-percent sales tax would go to the city, the medical marijuana law would prohibit any additional city tax on those transactions.
