Section 6. (a) Notwithstanding section 6 of chapter 64H or any other general or special law to the contrary, a city or town that accepts this section in the manner provided in section 4 of chapter 4 may impose a local sales tax upon sale or transfer of medical marijuana or medical marijuana products sold or transferred pursuant to chapter 369 of the acts of 2012 by a medical marijuana treatment center or marijuana retailer operating within the city or town to anyone other than a marijuana establishment at a rate not greater than 6.25 per cent of the total sales price received by the medical marijuana treatment center or marijuana retailer as a consideration for the sale of medical marijuana or medical marijuana products. The medical marijuana treatment center or marijuana retailer shall pay the local sales tax imposed under this section to the commissioner at the same time and in the same manner as the sales tax due to the commonwealth.
(b) All sums received by the commissioner under this section shall, at least quarterly, be distributed, credited and paid by the treasurer and receiver-general upon certification of the commissioner to each city or town that has accepted this section in proportion to the amount of the sums received in that city or town. Any city or town seeking to dispute the commissioner's calculation of its distribution under this subsection shall notify the commissioner, in writing, not later than 1 year from the date the tax was distributed by the commissioner to the city or town.
