Grant County Court finally approved the county’s recreational marijuana tax ordinance Jan. 27.

The 3% tax on marijuana products will take effect 90 days after last week’s second reading.

County Judge Scott Myers said the court members would discuss how the county should spend the tax revenue. He said the court would be open to suggestions from other government bodies and county departments about how the county spends the funds.

Myers said that he would like to see the money go to law enforcement.

County Commissioner Jim Hamsher said the county tax has fewer “strings attached” in how the county can use the money, unlike the state pot tax.
