La Pine, Oregon council repeals medical marijuana tax
The La Pine City Council voted unanimously Wednesday night to repeal the city’s 5 percent sales tax on medical marijuana, a week after the city was sued Dec. 2 by Green Knottz, a dispensary in La Pine.
City Attorney, Jeremy Green told NewsChannel 21 Thursday that the decision to repeal the tax was ultimately a business decision, as a legal battle would cost more than the revenue the city collects from the tax.
