Permits will be part of growing legal cannabis. Hail Mary Jane has said for a long time that the eventual re-legalization of cannabis will come down to ransoming our freedom via taxes and fees. Here’s some evidence we might be right:
Richmond [CA] will allow an unlimited number of permits for commercial cannabis grows as well as businesses that produce edibles like cookies, brownies and tinctures. The goal of the new law is to bring a sometimes shady industry into the sunlight and generate money for a city that is perpetually strapped for cash.
“We’re going to be in full tax-collection mode,” said Mayor Tom Butt, who spearheaded the initiative and estimates that it could bring in a minimum of $1 million each year. “We want the money.”
. . .
Under the new law, businesses will be required to locate in neighborhoods zoned light industrial and submit detailed security and safety plans that will be reviewed by both the Police and Fire departments. Applicants will also have to show that their facility will derive 100 percent of its energy from renewable materials before the application is even considered by the City Council. Once up and running, the businesses will be taxed 5 percent of all sales.
