Nolan Shultz started this petition to Cannabis Consumers / San Diegans

It has come to my attention that San Diego’s tax rate for recreational cannabis has increased from 5% to 8% as of July 1st. This 3% increase was a poison pill hidden in the 2016 Municipal Special Election ballot alongside proposition 64.

San Diego can decrease the Cannabis Business tax rate down to 1% or increase it up to 15% by passing a resolution at any City Council meeting. All other changes above 15% must be approved through a city-wide election. This gives an incredible amount of power to the City Council, which may be misued if they were to decide to increase the tax rate to the maxiumum 15%

In contrast, I would like to put the power back into the hands of our citizens. Any further changes should be at the discretion of the constiutuents. Therefore, I am starting a petition to have SD City Council decrease the city tax down to 3% from 8%. This saves the consumers and the business owners money by allowing them to operate without having an undue burden of unreasonable taxation.

We will be putting out further information in regards to the Cannabis Business tax rate and penalties in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, if you would like to read over the resolution I will provide a link below.
