Alaska collects first full month of marijuana tax revenue

 | January 5th, 2017

The state of Alaska has received its batch of cannabis tax revenue from the first full month of retail marijuana sales.

In November, seven marijuana cultivators paid $81,100 to the Alaska Department of Revenue’s Tax Division, division director Ken Alper wrote in an email.

About 98 pounds of marijuana bud and 10 pounds of trim — the leaves and stems — were sold wholesale, Alper wrote. Under Alaska law, cultivators pay the state’s tax. Bud is taxed at $50 per ounce, and other parts of the plant, like the stems and leaves, are taxed at $15 per ounce.
