*Regarding Estimated Sales Data

The Department of Revenue assesses the Adult Use and Medical Cannabis Tax on the “Retail Price” of all marijuana or marijuana products.

“Retail Price” is defined as the established price paid by the consumer for marijuana or a marijuana product at an adult use dispensary or medical marijuana dispensary. This established price would not include any discounts or reductions.

The reported monthly sales data shown in these tables may include discounted or reduced purchase prices paid by a purchaser. A discounted or reduced purchase price amount may not reflect the actual “Retail Price.”

Local Option Tax is not derived from estimated sales reports. Local option distributions are connected to the sales taxes collected by licensees and submitted to the Department of Revenue prior to the end of the applicable collection period. Please visit Local Option Tax Distribution for additional information.
