A Rancho Cordova Tax on Personal Growth of Marijuana, Measure O ballot proposition was on the November 2, 2010 ballot for voters in Rancho Cordova in Sacramento County.[1] It was approved.

Measure O was also known as the Personal Cannabis Cultivation Tax. It would have imposed a annual tax of $600 per square foot on indoor marijuana cultivation of up to and including 25 square feet, and a $900-per-square-foot tax for anything larger.

Since Proposition 19 was defeated, Measure O is moot.
