A Forbes article points to a bill, sponsored by Colorado Congressman Polis, that would tax marijuana at 50 percent of price. But that’s a 2013 bill, from the last Congress, so it’s officially dead. We’ve learned a lot since 2013 about how much the market can bear at first.
UPDATE: The Forbes website just added a reference to this year’s bill. This year Congressman Polis is teaming up with Oregon Congressman Blumenauer to propose a lower rate, phased in, starting at 10 percent and ending at 25 percent in year five. Details here.
