California Proposition 64 excise tax + sales tax + county tax

Proposition 64 passes, effective January 1, 2018, a 15 percent excise tax, based on the gross receipts from the retail sale, would be imposed upon retail purchasers of all marijuana and marijuana products, including medical marijuana. In addition, a tax on cultivators of marijuana would be imposed. Patients would not be excluded from these taxes.

The ID card program is voluntary in California; however patients with a doctor’s recommendation only will not qualify for the tax break should Prop. 64 pass.

1. Oregon starts statewide taxes at 17%, and local counties or municipalities can add to it AFAIUI.

And We still have the cheapest and probably best pot in the nation.

And now it is tested, and strictly regulated for pesticides.

Anyone who really objects can always grow up to 4 plants at home. I think in CA it's 6, right?

It will be fine, i definitely believe legalization is going to improve things for CA.

2. Around 20% in Colorado for rec..

medical card patients pay only the local tax, typically 5-7% I've had a med card for years, but haven't fulfilled a "follow up visit requirement" imposed on medical patients this year, so may lose it. Marijuana politics revolve around rules, regulations and $$$$. Would we only put these kind of requirements on things that are actually harmful.
