Recreational marijuana use sales tax on April Ballot.

McDonald County Commission is letting voters decide whether the county should collect a 3% sales tax
on purchases of recreational marijuana within the county.

When voters approved Amendment 3 last November legalizing the sale of marijuana in Missouri, they also approved a provision within that Amendment allowing governing bodies to impose a sales tax on the retail sale of adult use marijuana. However, county governments must take the extra step of holding an election before collecting the tax. The issue will be on the ballot April 4, 2023.

The sales tax would apply only to the retail sales of adult recreational use marijuana within McDonald County.

Ballot language: “Shall McDonald County, Missouri impose a countywide sales tax of three percent (3%) on all tangible personal property retail sales of adult use marijuana sold in McDonald County, Missouri?”
