Montana collects $1.8M in first year of medical marijuana taxes - Cannabis News
The state of Montana collected about $1.8 million in medical marijuana taxes over the first year the tax was charged. Starting in July 2017, the Montana Department of Revenue started administering a quarterly 4 percent tax on medical marijuana providers.
