San Jose voters will get a chance in November decide whether to impose a tax of up to 10 percent on medical cannabis businesses in the city.
The San Jose City Council on Tuesday, with a 7-4 vote, approved a measure that will place the tax on the ballot. If it’s approved, it will be the highest medical cannabis tax in the state.
Proponents of the tax see it as a revenue source for the cash-strapped city. But medical marijuana patients and activists fear a 10 percent tax is too high and will drive those in need of the medication to neighboring cities where the prices will be lower.
