Potency Tax Feasibility Study

The Liquor and Cannabis Board was directed in a 2019 budget proviso to conduct a study of the feasibility of a cannabis tax based on potency, rather than the current sale price structure. The proviso also required the agency to form a work group and submit a report of its finding to the legislature by December 1, 2019.
