March 7, 2017 Election:
Cannabis Business Tax – Measure A
Sonoma County residents will have the opportunity to vote on the Cannabis Business Tax (Measure A) in the March 7, 2017 special election. A simple majority of “yes” votes would authorize the County to impose taxes on cannabis businesses operating in the unincorporated county to fund essential county services such as public safety, health, roads, housing, and environmental protection. More information is available in the Cannabis Business Tax Fact Sheet
Note that cannabis permits (except for dispensaries) are not currently available, and will only become available if a cannabis tax passes or another funding source is identified. Cannabis dispensaries are currently being permitted.
