Taxes from Alaska’s first full month of marijuana sales are in, and the tax director for the Alaska Department of Revenue, Ken Alper, says the state collected just over $81,000 in November.

The state saw only $10,400 in pot taxes in October.

At the moment, marijuana in Alaska is only taxed at the cultivation level. Buds bring in $50 per ounce and $15 for all other parts of the plant.

Alper says November’s numbers are a good sign of what’s to come.
