Council Strikes Down Marijuana Sales Tax

EUGENE, Ore. — The Eugene City Council will not pursue a marijuana sales tax as part of Measure 91.

The council struck down a motion to pursue the issue further at Monday night’s public hearing.

It didn’t take long to strike down the motion.

“It’s going to be so expensive to buy marijuana recreational or medical that the black market, I mean why would anyone buy the legal stuff. The black market will continue to thrive,” said Councilor George Brown.

Councilor Brown was the first to speak against imposing a sales tax.

But he wasn’t the last.

“I don’t see a big urgency to tax this potential new source of revenue if we don’t know if the measure will pass. We don’t have mechanisms set up to collect this kind of tax,” said Councilor Claire Syrett.

From the measure already having a tax of its own, to uncertainty on how it would work, arguments against a marijuana tax went around the podium.

The council’s statements were a let down for some Lane Community College students who passionately spoke in favor of the tax.

“Tuition continually goes up and the level of services offered go down, community colleges may no longer be the most accessible path for folks,” said Scott Compton, LCC student.

“How can students justify furthering their debt to receive an education if they can’t even meet their basic needs,” said Summer Manier, LCC student.

The LCC students say 20 percent of marijuana sales taxes should go to their school to help students with growing debt.

Even though the council said no the students are still pushing to hear their voices heard.

“There will still be another chance for me to appeal to the commissioner’s office for the 40 percent. And hopefully have them change their mind about that,” said Manier.

Manier was referring to the 40 percent of state sales tax which will fund the state’s k-12 districts.

She says it should be expanded to help community colleges.
