JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Monthly marijuana tax revenues have topped $1 million for the fifth straight month and for the sixth time this year.
The state said Wednesday that it had collected nearly $1.4 million in marijuana taxes in July, a new monthly record. That compares to about $1.3 million in June, the previous high.
Cultivation facilities pay the tax, which is imposed when marijuana is sold or transferred from a licensed grow facility to a retail marijuana shop or product manufacturing facility.
The Department of Revenue reported that 107 cultivators paid the tax in July.
