New Bedford City Council motions call for eight retail marijuana stores, 3% tax

image_pdfimage_print

New Bedford City Councillors Joe Lopes and Ian Abreu are requesting that the Mitchell Administration adopt the maximum 3% local sale tax option upon the sale or transfer of marijuana or marijuana products by a marijuana retailer operating within the City of New Bedford.

Additionally, the committee on Licensing and Zoning for Cannabis is recommending to the City Council that the 20% limitation requested in this matter has been included in the proposed Zoning Ordinance that was referred to the City Council by the Committee.

This would limit retail marijuana stores to 20% of the liquor licenses in New Bedford. According to the mayor’s office, that would mean eight retail marijuana licenses for New Bedford.

Both motions will be addressed at the New Bedford City Council session scheduled for 7pm tonight.
