Juneau, Alaska (KINY) The move comes in response to marijuana business complaints that they can't make a profit in the state.
The Department of Revenue will take public comment on a proposed change until August 10th. The proposal would propose two new bud categories and taxes. Mature bud would be taxed at $50 per ounce. Immature or abnormal buds would be taxed at $25 per ounce. The remainder of the marijuana plant would be taxed at $15 an ounce.
The current tax is $50 per ounce for any part of the bud and flower and $15 an ounce for the remainder of the plant.
