Bureau County Board votes to tax recreational cannabis

PRINCETON — The Bureau County Board on Tuesday unanimously approved an ordinance imposing a tax on recreational cannabis sold in the county.

The ordinance imposes a 3 percent tax on gross receipts at a retail shop within any municipality in Bureau County and a 3.75 percent tax on gross receipts at a retail shop in any unincorporated areas of Bureau County.

The tax would also be imposed upon the sale of any food or beverage infused with cannabis.
