In Denver, all recreational marijuana sales are subject to seriously high taxes.
- There is a 15% retail sales tax on all marijuana products purchased in the dispensary.
In addition to the sales tax, there is also a general tax, special tax, plus an excise tax, each marijuana purchase is subject to more than 30% in Denver city taxes. The only way to save on the tax is to have a state-issued medical marijuana card. In Denver, medical marijuana purchases are not subject to the same taxes as recreational marijuana purchases. I was spending a advantage on recreational marijuana supplies plus the taxes were killing me. I went to my primary care physician plus I spoke with the lady about medical marijuana, then she told myself and others that it would easily help a wonderful deal for myself and others plus the doctor provided to write myself and others a medical recommendation! After that, I went to a dispensary in Denver to purchase medical marijuana products. I only had to pay sales tax plus none of the other extra taxes. The first time I bought medical marijuana in Denver, I saved almost $60 in taxes. I use that money to buy extra medical marijuana items. As long as I am getting a discount, I can freely medicate with marijuana. If I am not getting a discount, I have to be honestly careful with my expenditures so I do not run out of money throughout the week. I have to consistently worry about my income, because I live paycheck to paycheck. I do not have any credit cards. If I run out of money, I am stuck.
