San Diego Explained: The Pitches to Legalize and Tax Marijuana

Get the details on what State Prop 64 and local Measure N are all about

In November, California voters will decide on legalizing marijuana for recreational use. And in San Diego, voters will have another marijuana-related decision too – a possible new tax on pot.

If approved, Prop. 64 would allow people over 21 years old to use marijuana legally, without a prescription. It would also allow the state to tax sales of the drug.

In San Diego, voters will also decide on whether to levy an additional local pot tax by voting on Measure N.

On this week's San Diego Explained, NBC 7 San Diego's Monica Dean and Voice of San Diego’s Andrew Keatts discuss both local Measure N and State Prop 64.
