Hot Sulphur considers marijuana issues on ballot
October 30, 2014
Voters in Hot Sulphur Springs will consider two ballot issues and four advisory questions regarding retail marijuana during the midterm election.
Currently, the town of Hot Sulphur Springs does not allow retail marijuana stores, marijuana grow facilities, marijuana product manufacturing facilities or marijuana testing facilities.
Those bans have been in place since March 21, 2013.
Ballot Issue 2A and Ballot Issue 2B, along with Advisory Questions 2C through 2F, appear only on ballots of residents of Hot Sulphur Springs.
The two ballot issues do not ask residents to approve or deny recreational retail marijuana or marijuana grow facilities. Rather the ballot issues ask residents if a new sales tax and excise tax should be imposed for recreational retail marijuana and grow facilities in the event the Hot Sulphur Springs Board of Trustees approves such facilities.
The four advisory questions all relate to marijuana and ask residents if they approve of the current town bans.
