Local Cannabis Tax Revenues: Threat and Opportunity

Across the state, local governments are collecting local tax revenue and are using those funds to support general government and to expand law enforcement. Local groups organizing or preparing to organize to redirect local cannabis taxes away from law enforcement and toward community reinvestment will share their experiences. In addition, presenters will share new research on how numerous local governments are currently spending tax revenues. Presenters: Jim Freeman, Grassroots Action Support Team, Jim Keddy and Sarah-Michael Gaston, Youth Forward and local organizers
