Jackson County's Special Election On A Pot Tax

Tell people Election Day is less than a week away, and you'll get mostly blank stares. 

But it's true in Jackson County, which is voting on a measure to decide if marijuana should be taxed by the county. 

And it is not yet clear if the county would even have the power under the new Oregon marijuana law. 

Medical marijuana dispensary manager Michael Johnson joins us with his position.  As you'd expect, he's a no vote. 

Election Day--the day by which to return ballots--is March 10.
