How refreshing that Grass Valley is actively pursuing alernatives made possible by the new State laws to tax & regulate medical cannabis. Nevada City is poised to raise sales taxes on everyone when they could allow a cannabis dispensary and reap the tax benefits from just the people using MMJ. The County could also learn something from GV.
