Gov. Inslee: Cities Should Not Expect Revenue From Pot Sales!

The Bellingham Herald reports Gov. Inslee said on a conference call the state doesn’t plan to share its pot sales money with local municipalities.  When stores actually open the state will take up to 75 percent in excise taxes. Some cities, including Pasco, want some of the revenue.

Inslee thinks the revenue won’t really help the state with its budget shortfalls.

His comments came Wednesday in Olympia while laying out his supplemental budget for the next year.

We wonder what happened to the hundreds of millions of tax dollars some said would be generated by a state-run pot system?
