The Tax Haul From Cannabis Sales In Oregon: $25.5 Million

Oregon has processed $25.5-million in tax payments from recreational marijuana from January through the end of July.

The state's Department of Revenue says medical marijuana dispensaries were required to file their second-quarter returns for recreational marijuana by August 1.

Oregonians legalized recreational marijuana in late 2014.

But it can only be sold by medical marijuana dispensaries until the Oregon Liquor Control Commission finalizes rules for the new industry. That's expected to happen by next year.

Medical marijuana dispensaries started collecting a 25 per cent tax on their recreational marijuana sales in January.

Anticipated state revenue from recreational marijuana through June 2017 was recently quadrupled by Oregon's Legislative Revenue Office.

The expected amount rose from $8.4-million to $35-million.

Recreational marijuana is illegal in 46 states and under federal law.

After a battery of tests and misdiagnoses, I was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease twelve years ago, and thus began a long battle with trial-and-error medical treatments. I changed my diet several times, even though my doctors didn’t seem confident it would change much (it didn’t), went to physical therapy for pain-related issues, and took so many different pharmaceuticals I can’t even begin to recall each and every one. My days were foggy due to side effects from pharmaceuticals, such as steroids, that made me feel worse than I did before I even took them.

Can we see some ID please?
