Two representatives recently introduced bills to eliminate state sales tax on food. But food containing marijuana won’t be exempt from the tax, Tulsa marijuana attorney Stephen Cale said.
Rep. Jon Echols (R-Oklahoma City) introduced HB 2086 while Rep. Charles McCall (R-Atoka) introduced HB 1955. Both bills provide for eliminating the state sales tax on food. However, the definition of “food” in the bills specifically excludes “marijuana, usable marijuana, or marijuana-infused products.”
