State Flower Taxes Today

Note the bolding, above.  Nevada taxes all cannabis de facto by weight; Colorado taxes producers by weight unless there is an arm’s-length sale.

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. https://newrevenue.org/2017/07/23/is-colorados-new-marijuana-tax-leaky/. Nevada converts to a weight base for all cases. https://newrevenue.org/2017/07/02/nevadas-70-cent-per-gram-tax-on-marijuana-flower/
