Oregon rakes in $60 million in state sales taxes from marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Sun, January, 22nd 2017 by THCFinder

Recreational marijuana sales in Oregon produced $60.2 million in state tax ­revenue in 2016, the first year of state-taxed pot sales.

For much of the year, ­marijuana sellers collected a 25 percent sales tax.

To produce the $60.2 million in tax revenue reported by the state Department of Revenue on Friday, total retail sales of marijuana and ­pot-laced products last year would have had to equal about $241 million.

Marijuana tax revenues ­exceeded projections, said Mazen ­Malik, senior economist for the Oregon Legislative Revenue Office. He had estimated ­marijuana sales would ­produce $44 million during the year, $16 million less than what came in.

Higher-than-predicted prices for marijuana extracts and edibles may have contributed to the higher than projected tax revenues, Malik said.

In this article, we will take a closer look at these trends and how they could play out for companies operating in the burgeoning industry.

Significant Revenue Opportunity

ArcView Research estimates that the North American cannabis industry will triple in size to more than $20 billion in five years. In addition to recreational legalization in Canada, California, Nevada, Maine, and Massachusetts’ recreational legalization will be key revenue drivers. Many companies have already benefited from these trends in both the U.S. and Canada and could experience even greater revenue growth over the coming years.
