Josephine County, Ore. -- Josephine County voters will have the chance to decide whether or not the county should tax recreational marijuana if a statewide measure legalizes it in November.
If recreational marijuana is legalized cities and counties will have to pressure the state legislature for money to regulate marijuana.
The advisory question on the ballot will be the first step in determining whether or not Josephine County does just that.
"It's a question of what is the will of the people, basically. It's not a yes we will tax or no we won't tax it's what do the voters want us to do?" County Commissioner Keith Heck said.
Josephine County commissioners had an emergency meeting Friday. That was the last day to put a measure on the ballot. They decided unanimously to pass the advisory question on to the ballot.
