City could tax marijuana 

Supervisors Ross Mirkarimi introduced a policy statement for the June ballot that would ask San Francisco voters if The City should “license, regulate and tax the cultivation and sale of cannabis, and allow for adults 21 years of age or older to possess cannabis for both medical and non-medical uses in strict compliance with the state vehicle and penal codes and prohibitions against consuming cannabis in public spaces and in the presence of minors.”

If the policy statement makes it onto the ballot, which it will likely, its approval would lay the foundation for city officials to move forward with regulations of cultivation and tax proposals.

It comes as state voters could approve a November ballot measure allowing recreational use of marijuana.
