Oakland was the first city in the nation to tax marijuana in 2009. Now, businesses say a year into legalization, that 10% is too high. On May 21, the city council will consider reducing that rate by half. Finance officials claim would cost the city $9 million a year and result in a cut of city services. KCBS Radio Reporter Holly Quan visited one of the city's newest dispensaries to see why legal pot shops are having such a hard time.
