Stanton votes to tax marijuana, raise hotel bed tax

According to the Orange County Registrar of Voters, there are about 15,000 registered voters in the City of Stanton.

Only about 3,000 voted in the most recent election.

There were two questions on the ballot:

  • Measure A asked for voter approval to tax marijuana-based businesses. This covered both cannabis and hemp, cultivation and retail.
  • Measure B asked for voter approval to raise the hotel bed tax from 8% to 12% to pay for municipal services.

The OC Registrar of Voters reports that both measures passed.
