Oregon collects over $25 million in marijuana tax revenues

0822 Oregon pot revenueSalem, Ore. — Oregon has collected more than $25.5 million dollars in marijuana tax payments this year. That total is accurate through the end of July.

The Oregon Department of Revenue said dispensaries’ second quarter returns were due at the beginning of this month.

The department says dispensaries could face penalties if their returns aren’t filed in a timely manner.

Recreational marijuana sales have been taxed at 25% since January.

After a public hearing Wednesday morning, the Jackson County Commissioners voted to put a 3% tax on recreational sales within the county on the November ballot.

Last year, the commissioners repealed a tax because it contradicted state law.
