Marijuana Tax



Ballot Measure 2, the act to tax and regulate the production, sale, and use of marijuana, was passed on Nov. 4, 2014. Pursuant to the ballot measure, Alaska will levy a tax on the marijuana sold in Alaska. The Tax Division will collect the marijuana tax from licensed marijuana cultivation facilities.

The marijuana tax is imposed when marijuana is sold or transferred from a marijuana cultivation facility to a retail marijuana store or marijuana product manufacturing facility. The intial tax was $50 per ounce of marijuana.

Effective Jan. 1, 2019, sales and transfers of marijuana are subject to new tax rates. Mature bud/flower are taxed at $50 per ounce; immature or abnormal bud is taxed at $25 per ounce; trim is taxed at $15 per ounce; and clones are taxed at a flat rate of $1 per clone.
