EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Lane County commissioners have voted to impose a countywide tax on marijuana if Oregon voters approve legalization on Nov. 4.

The Register-Guard reports (http://is.gd/2coEQ3 ) that the county vote came Tuesday, a day after the Springfield City Council said yes to a local tax on marijuana, while the Eugene City Council said no to the possibility.

Dozens of cities and counties are considering local taxes before Oregon voters decide next month whether to legalize the use of recreational marijuana. The fate of all such local pot taxes is unclear.

The local jurisdictions hope by having a decision in place before the election they would be exempted from a provision in the measure that would allow a state tax only.
