Portland voters authorized a tax on recreational cannabis sales in 2016. The tax was promoted as funds that would advantage and help folks and cannabis organizations owners that had been adversely impacted when cannabis was illegal. Due to the fact that time, most of the taxes collected have been applied for police and transportation applications. When the utilizes are permitted beneath the ballot measure, neighborhood members, cannabis organizations, or other people impacted by previous cannabis policies have not been involved in the general price range choices, and the City has not reported on how it is applied the tax revenues. We advise the City boost the transparency of tax allocation choices and benefits.
