Should Santa Rosa tax cannabis businesses to help offset the cost of regulating the fast-growing industry?
That question will be answered by voters, who will decide the fate of Measure D on the June 6 ballot.
There is no formal opposition to the measure. Tawnie Logan, executive director of the Sonoma County Growers Alliance, said her group of cannabis growers supports the city’s plan.
“It’s a good framework that’s representative of a tax structure that’s more approachable for the industry,” Logan said. “It’s still a little high but it’s far more accessible than the rates proposed by the county.”
