The 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.
