Oakland, California, passes landmark marijuana tax
bonghit

OAKLAND, California (CNN) -- Oakland's bid to become the first U.S. city to tax proceeds on medical marijuana passed Tuesday by a landslide vote.

About 80 percent of voters chose to impose the tax on Oakland's medical marijuana facilities, according to the Alameda County Registrar of Voters.

Some celebrated the news at Oaksterdam University by hand-rolling large marijuana cigarettes or stuffing cannabis into pipes. The school trains students for work in the medical marijuana industry.

"It is important because the city of Oakland is facing a massive deficit like many jurisdictions in California," said Steve DeAngelo, a leader of one of the city's cannabis clubs. "And we decided to step up to the plate and make a contribution to the city in a time of need."

Re: Oakland, California, passes landmark marijuana tax
when they tax medical MJ so high that those who need it will not be able to buy it then it has accomplished nothing.

Re: Oakland, California, passes landmark marijuana tax
furthermore i don't understand exactly what this changes.. dispensaries already are paying tax to the state.. does this just mean now they must pay state and city taxes?
