Colorado and Nevada adjust weight taxes periodically to tax 15% of recent market prices. California indexes its weight tax for inflation. All states taxing weight have categories taxed lower than flower (bud) — like trim (leaves, shake). Most recreational states impose standard retail sales taxes, too, if they have them.
Taxes on medical range from zero to 100% of the recreational rate.
