Some local jurisdictions across California have realized that to stay competitive and to bring, and to keep, consumers out of the black market, they need to lower their ambitiously high cannabis tax rates. Among them is Grover Beach in San Luis Obispo County.
Effective May 7, 2018, Grover City reduced its commercial cannabis tax rate from 10% to 5% for recreational retail and to 3% for cannabis manufacturers, distributors and other cannabis businesses. It also reduced its cannabis cultivation tax from $25 per square foot to $5 per square foot based on floor area.
