Marijuana industry could grow fast with tax bill

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

As marijuana businesses expand in Washington State, a bill being debated in Olympia could prompt the industry to grow even more.

Producers, processors and retail shop owners are closely watching HB 2136, which would rework some of the current regulations and change the tax structure. Some marijuana businesses say it's nearly impossible to make any money under the current tax structure.

"We've learned a lot since I-502 passed," says Rep. Reuven Carlyle (D-Seattle), the bill's primary sponsor. "This is an update, and a modernization of the current initiative."

Right now, marijuana laws apply a 25 percent excise tax on each level of the system: producer to a processor, processor to a retailer, and retailer to the customer. In addition, B&O taxes on the production and local retail sales taxes apply.

For those who operate as a producer and a processor, a common business model, they're hit with three taxes.

HB 2136 would collapse the tax burden, into one, 37 percent excise tax.

Large scale producer/processors, like OMG Sykes in Snohomish County, say simplifying the tax structure will allow businesses to more easily operate, and make money.

"With where the prices are in the market, it's very tough to compete," said John Knutsen, co-owner of OMG Sykes, one of the largest operations in the state.

Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders Supports Marijuana Decriminalization, Possibly Legalization

Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

Those concerned that the next U.S. president won’t be as amenable to marijuana as the Obama administration might consider voting for Democratic nominee and current U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who voiced his outright support for decriminalization—and perhaps eventually backing full cannabis legalization—on Tuesday.

Sanders made his optimistic remarks during a Q&A session on Reddit, the social media website that enables registered users to directly participate in interviews with celebs and politicians.
One Reddit user who goes by the handle “ynmidk” referenced a 2014 Time interview in which Sanders opined that pot decriminalization is “not a major issue,” while adding that he would “look into it.” The user then asked  Sanders if he, “could... update us on your position regarding the war on drugs?”

Sanders responded that he supported his home state of Vermont's decision to decriminalize small amounts of personal pot. He added that when he served as mayor of Burlington, his administration ensured “very few people were arrested for smoking marijuana. Our police had more important things to do.”

Sanders then implicated he may well broaden his perspective.

“Colorado has led the effort towards legalizing marijuana and I’m going to watch very closely to see the pluses and minuses of what they have done," he said. "I will have more to say about this issue within the coming months.”
