LIFESTYLE DELIVERY SYSTEMS INC. ANNOUNCES CANNABIS TAX REDUCTION ORDINANCE BY THE CITY OF ADELANTO GOES INTO EFFECT
The City of Adelanto, where Lifestyle Delivery Systems Inc.'s state-of-the-art facilities are located, has informed the company that the city ordinance to reduce the cannabis tax has gone into effect as of June 6, 2019.
Last week, the City of Adelanto announced the ordinance to reduce the tax on transportation, distribution, manufacturing and cannabis testing lab services from 5 per cent down to 1 per cent, voted four to one in favour of the reduction, has become effective. The city council also voted four to one to reduce the cultivation tax from $5 per month per square foot to 42 cents per month per square foot. The tax reduction and the dispensaries tax, which was reduced from 5 per cent down to 3 per cent, both went into effect on June 6, 2019. The reduction in city taxes will be a positive incentive for cannabis businesses to operate in Adelanto.
Brad Eckenweiler, chief executive officer, commented: "This tax reduction was essential to our future and the future of our subsidiaries in Adelanto. Without this restructuring of the taxes in Adelanto, the company would have had to move its licensing jurisdiction in order to compete in the current California cannabis market. We were not alone in this assumption. Most of the operators in Adelanto were making similar plans; some have already moved portions of their operations. We were forced to reduce our production, based on the onerous tax burden, which would have cost far more money to operate than to not operate. That is now behind us, and we are preparing to ramp up our production once more, understanding that this was an obstacle that has been overcome, and we can resume full operations." The Lifestyle Delivery Systems subsidiaries are excited to get back to a full work schedule and applaud the actions of the city council. The subsidiaries look forward to a long and mutually beneficial future together.
The company will continue to update the market on all events as they become relevant.
