As of 2 December 2019.  Please send corrections:  po@newrevenue.org.

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.
