Recreational Marijuana Sales Tax

Funding for a Better Blue Springs. 3% Sales Tax on Recreational Marijuana. Vote April 4.

On April 4, residents will vote to add a 3% Sales tax on the purchase of recreational marijuana.

If passed, it is estimated to generate an additional $250,000 annually for the City’s general fund. Only those who purchase recreational marijuana are subject to the sales tax. Cities and counties in Missouri are working together to ensure the sales tax on recreational marijuana remains consistent across the state.
