JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) – Marijuana tax collections in Alaska dipped slightly in September but still totaled about $1.5 million.
Figures released by the state Revenue Department Thursday show tax revenue of $1.48 million in September, compared to $1.54 million in August, which remains the high.
Cultivators 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 state says monthly tax revenue fell below $1 million in just one month this year.
