State marijuana taxes today

chart in word 18 October 2017This chart reflects my understanding as of 18 October 2017, and reflects recent changes in CO, MA, NV, and WA.  Comments and corrections welcomed.  Oregon’s 20-percent number reflects a 17-percent state tax and universally adopted 3-percent local taxes.  Otherwise local taxes are more of a patchwork, and are ignored.  Colorado and Nevada have nominal 15-percent producer taxes.  Colorado converts its tax to a weight base for related party or vertically integrated cases. Nevada converts to a weight base for all cases.

Now if I could get rid of those blue marks . . .
