Moscow Mills "Prop M"

Moscow Mills’ Board of Aldermen passed Proposition “M,” an ordinance that will place a 3% sales tax on non-medicinal marijuana sold in the city, at its monthly meeting on Jan. 17. The ordinance will go on the April 4 municipal ballot for passage by the voters, and will need a two-thirds majority for codification.

Moscow Mills, Mo. - When Missouri voters approved the legalization of marijuana for recreational use in the November elections last year, cities and towns statewide had to decide how to best adapt to the new constitutional amendment once it took effect earlier this month.

The cities of Lincoln County were no different. Even though a majority of Lincoln County’s voters cast ballots against the amendment, it passed, so the county has to prepare for the influx of dispensaries – and the current locations that deal in and study the effects of medical marijuana applying for recreational licenses.

A copy of the ordinance passed the Moscow Mills Board of Alderman that will be voted on by residents on April 4, that if passed, will add a 3% sales tax on non-medicinal marijuana.
