NJ decides to tax medical marijuana

New Jersey officials say they’re going to impose sales taxes on medical marijuana.  State Treasury spokesman Andy Pratt said Tuesday that the Division of Taxation made the decision to be consistent with the intent of lawmakers behind a 2010 law to allow the sale of pot to patients.  So far, no dispensaries are selling marijuana to patients in New Jersey.  Greenleaf Compassion Center in Montclair has a license to open. But its director, Joseph Stevens, has said it was stalled by the question over taxes.
