CARTHAGE, Mo.- Carthage’s city council has voted to call an election on the question of whether to impose an additional 3% sales tax on recreational marijuana.

During the statewide election of November 2022, Missouri voters approved an amendment to the state’s constitution, which made the use and sale of recreational (adult use) marijuana legal in Missouri for adults over the age of 21.
