Prices To Rise For Oregon Weed Buyers

Prices to Rise for Oregon Weed Buyers

by Melanie Marquis

Oregon weed smokers will soon be paying more for recreational cannabis. Beginning January 4th, dispensaries will be required to collect a 25% tax on all recreational marijuana purchases. Recreational marijuana has been tax-free since the first retail sales began in October 2015, giving buyers a break on prices. On average, a gram of recreational flower sells for anywhere from $8 to $15 in Oregon, with quarter-ounces ranging from a low $25 to a high $150. Oregon state law limits recreational cannabis purchases to no more than a quarter-ounce in one day, so retailers are unable to offer discounts on larger quantities like buyers in Colorado enjoy. With the new taxes, what used to be an $8 gram will now cost $10, while a $60 quarter will jump up to $75. Considering that most moderate to heavy herb smokers go through substantially more than a quarter-ounce per week, that additional 25% tax per purchase could really add up.

Retail recreational marijuana sales in Oregon topped 11 million in the first month alone, so the new cannabis taxes will likely add millions to the state's annual income. The tax revenue will be split between state and local agencies, with the largest shares going to the Common School Fund and to Mental Health, Alcoholism, and Drug Services. 

Currently, recreational cannabis is sold only through medical dispensaries in Oregon, but new stand-alone recreational-only dispensaries are expected to open starting in October 2016. Sales at the new dispensaries will only be subjected to a 17% tax, with cities and counties having the option of imposing an additional 3% tax if they choose to do so.

Despite the increase in taxes and higher prices in the interim, the cost of recreational marijuana in Oregon may eventually decrease over the next few years as more dispensaries open and the market stabilizes. There is currently a lot of variation and fluctuation in Oregon cannabis prices, with dispensaries still struggling to find the right balance between costs, supply, and demand. 

What's certain is that at least until next October when the first recreational-only dispensaries open, you'll soon be paying a solid 25% more for your weed. If you're concerned about your bud budget, you might want to stock up on tax-free weed while you can, making as many purchases as the law allows between now and January 4th.

Oregon loses Hightimes Cannabis Cup in 2015 to Northern Cali!

It is a sad day in Oregon when the OLCC (Oregon Liquor Control Commission) will prevent a huge event like Hightimes Cannabis Cup from being in a venue that is large enough for 5000+ people. Regardless if liquor is served or not this did not matter to the OLCC when they threatened that any venue that allowed Hightimes to throw their event would be in danger of losing their liquor license. According to Hightimes this one Cannabis Cup could have brought in hundreds of thousands of dollars and possibly millions of dollars in revenue for Oregon.
 
Amanda YoungerHIGH TIMES Event Director, stated “Bringing the HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup to Oregon has proven to be a Herculean task— in fact, it’s been the most difficult of all of our Cannabis Cups to get off the ground.

It seems funny that the citizens of a State that has made the choice to legalize marijuana
still have to pay the penalty for old school politics. 

What do YOU think?

We have noticed while reading the news lately that there is
still a lot Canna Bigotry in the United States.

Like for instance, Cyd Maurer, 25, a University of Oregon graduate who was the morning weekend anchor at Eugene's ABC affiliate "KEZI."  She was fired after getting into a minor accident while on the job. She was truthful with her supervisor about the use of legal recreational marijuana but of course after her drug test for work came back positive for THC she was fired.

Well guess what?

She's fighting back and now is a activist for the legal marijuana movement.

What are the weed laws going to be in the future?
This is a very touchy situation now that Oregon has made marijuana legal.

How does this play out with you and your job?

 
Canna Saver Oregon would love to hear what your thoughts are on this topic.
Express yourself - You never know there may be a coupon in it for ya. LOL 
Have a Beautiful Oregon Day!
