The city councilors of Coos Bay have finished two Ballot Measures. One measure is for a tax on the sale of recreational marijuana and the other is for issuing business licenses to marijuana dispensaries. If enacted, it will allow the city to a three percent tax.
The city tax would go to the general fund and it should have been supported. The city messed with the vote and denied the results, so voters should NOT support the Marijuana Tax. The city went against the voters who approved Measure 91. DO NOT VOTE in favor of rewarding the city officials when they denied the Right to Commerce to the businesses and the people. The other tax that should be lowered is the seventeen percent tax that is going to the state. It should be downgraded to a three percent tax to match the amount taken by the cities or counties of Oregon...Rob T.
