Tucson Mayoral Candidate Proposed a 300% Healthcare Marijuana Sales Tax


A single of Tucson’s mayoral candidates in this year’s main elections is Steve Farley, a former state representative and senator, who, in 2011, attempted to impose a 300% sales tax on healthcare marijuana by way of bill HB2557.

“As the referenced Tucson Weekly short article of 2011 points out, my bill was an try to commence a discussion about remedying the woefully underfunded public well being technique in Arizona for behavioral and physical well being and addiction remedy,” Steve Farley told AZmarijuana.com. “I listened to my constituents at the time and consequently withdrew assistance for my personal bill a week later. For the previous eight years, and into the future, I oppose further taxes on MMJ.”
