Carbondale voters to weigh in on retail marijuana taxes

August 28, 2013
Carbondale voters will see a new tax question on the ballot later this year. Carbondale trustees finalized a ballot question last night for a 5 percent sales tax on recreational marijuana and a 5 percent excise tax on wholesale marijuana. Trustees also said that if approved, they may end up lowering the tax if they feel it's not necessary.

In the audience was James Leonard, co-owner of the Doctor's Garden dispensary on Main Street. KDNK's Eric Skalac spoke to Leonard after the meeting to find out how these taxes and other recent marijuana policy decisions could impact his business.
