Caption:               Should Marijuana be Sold and Processed in Mill City.

Question:             Shall Mill City allow medical and recreational marijuana dispensaries; producers, processors, wholesalers and retailers.

SUMMARY:           In 2016 the voters in Mill City prohibited the sale and processing of both medical and recreational marijuana. If this initiative is approved it would allow the sale and processing of medical and recreational marijuana.

Approval of this initiative would allow the sale of both medical and recreational marijuana subject to restrictions that are currently set forth in state statutes and Mill City Ordinance No. 384 which is codified in Title 17 of the Mill City code. Approval of this initiative would also allow the processing of medical and recreational marijuana; again subject to restrictions currently in place.

If this measure is approved the city of Mill City would become eligible for tax revenues generated by the sale of medical and recreational marijuana including state marijuana tax revenues and local tax revenues.
