Arizona AG proposes marijuana tax.Posted: Updated:
Arizona's attorney general wants the state to make money off medical marijuana.
Voters approved the use of medical marijuana last November. Now Attorney General Tom Horne wants the state to impose a tax on the drug, to help Arizona close the budget gap.
"I did a rough estimate based on a report in the denver post and apply that to the Arizona population it would bring in about $40 million per year," said Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne.
Horne says he'll make the recommendation for the tax to the Department of Revenue.
