If the bill had actually passed, the 300 %tax would’ve suggested that a” $ 2 joint would cost $ 8,” Tucson Weekly reported. Presently, patients acquiring medical marijuana in Tucson pay an 8.7 %tax( state and city).” As the referenced Tucson Weekly article of 2011 explain, my costs was an attempt to start a conversation around correcting the woefully underfunded public health system in Arizona for behavioral and physical health and dependency treatment,” Steve Farley informed AZmarijuana.com. “I listened to my constituents at the time and subsequently withdrew support for my own bill a week later on.
