A City of Albany Tax on Marijuana Dispensaries, Measure Q ballot proposition was on the November 2, 2010 ballot for voters in the City of Albany in Alameda County, where it was approved.[1]

The marijuana dispensary tax ballot measure established a tax on for-profit marijuana dispensaries at $25 per $1,000 of gross receipts. Non-profit marijuana dispensaries were to be taxed at the rate of $25 per square foot.

There were no marijuana dispensaries in Albany at the time of Measure Q. However, city politicians wanted to be prepared, especially if the California Marijuana Legalization Initiative, which was defeated, had passed in November.
