New State Marijuana Tax Rate Effective January 1

first_imgThe current tax is $50 per ounce for bud or flower, and $15 per ounce for other plant parts. These taxes are paid wholesale, when plants are sold from grower to retailer or manufacturer. Leif Abel, owner of Greatland Ganja in Kasilof: “So in essence we are paying the tax before the money has been made on the product, because the actual money comes from when the retailers sells that product to the end consumer. So, we’ve got a tax structure where the tax has to be paid on the product far before the end consumer ever pays for it, by the cultivation company who created it.”  At their meeting on Wednesday, they confirmed the new tax rate of immature, malformed or seedy marijuana bud at $25 per ounce. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Department of Revenue and the Alaska Alcohol and Marijuana Control Office confirmed a new marijuana tax rate effective on January 1, 2019.

Marketers Concerned About Transparency of Programmatic

first_img Around 300 agency and client-side marketers responded to the survey commissioned by Advertiser Perceptions on behalf of TMBI, revealing industry-wide skepticism in two categories: audience targeting, and site credibility. “Big brands are going to want to do business with brands that offer a well lit, transparent environment,” says Rich Sutton, chief revenue officer of TMBI. It is good news for magazine brands, whose greatest asset in a crowded advertising space is their cultural credibility. Most magazines have track records of consistant and reliable content. If marketers are insecure about the “safety” of their brands, what better place for their dollars than in the hands of a legacy publisher? Sutton stresses that this survey does not mean that programmatic is going away. TMBI itself takes in revenues from programmatic buys, and he says that marketers love the high ROI of low cost purchases.  There is a crisis of confidence among CMOs and marketers when it comes to transparency in programmatic, the latest white paper released by Trusted Media Brands claims. Prev1 of 6NextUse your ← → (arrow) keys to browsecenter_img Flip through to see the survey results for yourself. In short, the concern is this: marketers don’t feel that they have enough information about or control over where their programmatic ads land. In a world of fake news websites and social media accountibility, advertising on a website with offensive material can lead to a negative conversation about your brand in the greater media eco system. Marketers, the survey shows, feel that programmatic sellers are too opaque when it comes to controlling for such errors. Seventy-three percent of respondents agreed that the ability to buy ads programmatically is important. However, 81 percent of respondent agreed that “given recent news concerning credibility of digital sources, it’s even more important to advertise on the right site.” Prev1 of 6NextUse your ← → (arrow) keys to browselast_img read more

Air Force Local Leaders Seek Compromise over Proposed Textile Plant outside March

first_imgOfficials from March Air Reserve Base in Southern California and local authorities are hoping to avoid a potential conflict over a proposed textile plant that would be located in the airfield’s Accident Potential Zone 1.The project still is in the preliminary stages, but the commander of the air reserve base has said the $31 million, 185,000-square foot manufacturing plant could jeopardize the installation’s mission, reports the Press-Enterprise.At a meeting of the March Joint Powers Authority last week, Brig. Gen. Russell Muncy said locating a plant in the base’s accident potential zones would raise concerns about the safety of its flight operations.“The desire is to minimize density along these corridors,” Muncy said. “Ideally, if an airplane were to come out of the sky, you want it to hit nothing.”Ultimately, the plant could make the base vulnerable to realignment or closure, the commander said. “Encroachment is the quickest way to render any military installation ineffective,” he said.Danielle Wheeler, executive director of the joint powers authority, indicated the conflict could be resolved.“There’s been lots of discussions about [this] project today,” Wheeler said, referring to her office and officials from March and the neighboring city of Perris. “We’re making great headway.”Muncy similarly was optimistic a mutually beneficial solution to the issue could be found.“We’re looking at ways, ‘How can we get to a win-win for the community and still protect the base’s operational capability?’” he said. “I think we’ll get there on this. When you’ve got good communication you can work through anything.” Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more
