Council looks at marijuana issues

The Lebanon City Council is considering actions in response to the legalization of recreational marijuana in the state of the Missouri. The Council discussed a proposed tax and other issues related to marijuana in a work session meeting Thursday night. The Council reviewed plans to place a 3 percent sales tax on adult use marijuana sales in the city on the April ballot. Their plans may also involve an election to opt out of marijuana sales in the city. The Council heard a presentation from Nathan Nickolaus, an attorney with Lauber Municipal Law about the implications of Amendment 3, which was approved by Missouri voters in November.
