CO bud tax is 66 cents per gram.

Colorado’s current producer tax rates on marijuana – replacing the 15-percent tax in the Constitution – are the subject at https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/sites/default/files/AverageMarketRate.pdf.

Bud is taxed at 66 cents a gram, trim at 12 cents a gram. Here’s how we get there:  The “average market rate” — which substitutes for real prices — for bud is now $2,007 a pound; for trim, $364 a pound. Multiply those by 15 percent to get the tax per pound, divide by 453.592 to get the tax per gram.  That’s a little higher than in 2014.
