Medical MJ To Be Taxed
Not too surprising, is it?
It should make some of you happy- at least those of you pissed off about pot growers not paying taxes.
The Board of Equalization has decided to apply sales tax to marijuana sold at the many medical marijuana clinics across the state. Since pot isn't dispensed by a pharmacist or approved by the FDA, I guess it isn't considered medicine, according to them.
Kinda throws a kink into what a friend (now retired from the Casa Grande, AZ Police Dept.) suggested to me years ago. He said, "The only reason drugs aren't legal is they haven't figured out a way to tax them...".
Hmm...does this medical mj tax make that any more, or less, true?
