SLO County voters to decide on cannabis business tax

Posted: Updated:

San Luis Obispo County voters will get a chance to decide on a local tax for cannabis-related businesses.

Measure B-18, as it's expected to be called, will appear on the June ballot. It was approved by the County Board of Supervisors this week.

The proposed measure would place a tax on the gross receipts of cannabis-related businesses operating in unincorporated areas of the county. The tax would start at 4 percent with a maximum of 10 percent. The Board of Supervisors would have the flexibility to adjust the rate for different types of businesses. 

Cannabis testing facilities would be exempt.

The proposed tax would be in addition to the state's 15 percent tax on cannabis-related businesses.

If approved by voters, the tax would take effect on or near July 1, 2018.
