Portland-NORML-BannerRecently the City of Portland proposed local ballot measure 26-180 for the November, 2016 Ballot, which proposes a local recreational cannabis tax. While Portland NORML understands that local municipalities may impose a 3% local tax beginning in 2017, Portland NORML does not support local taxation in addition to state imposed taxes.

The City of Portland already has the highest local municipality licensing fees in the state, and Portland NORML finds those fees already detrimental to cannabis consumers that are looking for fairly priced cannabis items. Local taxes, in addition to the higher licensing fees, could potentially make cannabis prices for Portland not as competitive as other local cities.
