The report not only analyzes the tax amounts and structures of all states legally allowing the sale of recreational marijuana, but also the potential cost to sellers, processors, and dispensary owners.
For example, while Washington levies higher taxes on its sellers than any other state, Alaska and Nevada are the most expensive states for buyers of recreational marijuana.

As the recreational marijuana business continues to bloom and government restrictions continue to lift across the U.S., tax and cost structures may be standardized to a degree. At the moment, however, the varying tax differences deserve to be acknowledged not only by those levying them, but by aspiring cannabis entrepreneurs or dispensary owners.
Information for the ChamberofCommerce.org marijuana tax report was obtained via a wide range of resources, including PewResearch, Tax Foundation, and Urban.org, as well as local and state resources that include the Washington State Treasury and Seattle Business Magazine.
