    Stanton voters went to the polls Tuesday, Nov. 5, to decide the fate of two ballot measures — Measure A, which calls for taxing future cannabis and hemp businesses, and Measure B, which would increase the city’s transient occupancy (hotel/motel) tax to raise money for city services.

    Both measures were winning by wide margins in early results Tuesday, shortly after polls closed at 8 p.m.

    Measure A proposes a $12 tax per square foot used for cultivation, a 6% tax on retail sales, and a 4% tax on other cannabis or hemp businesses.

    Cannabis-related businesses currently are not allowed to operate in the city and the measure would not change that.  Read More
