Washington, DC: Proposed Medical Marijuana Sales Tax Plan Could Yield $400,000 For City

Washington, DC: Members of the DC City Council are anticipated to vote on a proposal to impose a six percent sales tax on cannabis sold at city-licensed medical marijuana dispensaries.


The District of Columbia's top financial officer estimates that the new tax could raise over $400,000 in funding over five years. Total tax revenue could be much higher depending on how many District patients register with the city to use cannabis medicinally.


In May, District lawmakers unanimously passed legislation calling on DC Health Department officials to oversee the creation of up to five facilities to dispense medical cannabis to authorized patients. Under the plan, patients with qualified illnesses and a recommendation from their physician will be able to possess and purchase medical cannabis from authorized dispensaries.


Patients are not allowed to engage in the home cultivation of marijuana under the DC plan.
City council members are scheduled to vote on the proposed sales tax measure on Tuesday, June 15.
