At a recent debate between Das Williams and Laura Capps, Das stated that marijuana money helps schools. Because of banking regulations, the county separates cannabis tax from property tax. Schools receive approximately 50 percent of the property tax revenue, currently at $1 billion. The small, $6 million cannabis tax revenue is used for cannabis enforcement and administrative costs. So, how does cannabis money benefit schools if it is separated from the property tax roll that feeds the schools? Facts matter. Vote Laura Capps.
