Three Montana counties approve local taxes on recreational marijuana
Preliminary election results show three Montana counties have approved local excise taxes on recreational marijuana.
Missoula, Park and Yellowstone counties each approved a 3% local tax on recreational marijuana, according to the unofficial results.
The local option tax on recreational sales will be on top of a state-mandated 20% tax.
Park and Yellowstone counties also appear to have approved a tax increase on medical marijuana, and Missoula narrowly rejected that increase.
