Excise tax is way too high for farmer!

This has to be said, the tax on farmers is WAY too high.
How is someone supposed to fork up 150$ per pound after paying a trimmer and your testing fees!
What if the pound is total crap, and sells for nothing, same fee, same amount!
If you grow the best i suppose your paying less taxes, hurray!
But for most people this is unfair, it should be a % of your sales not a flat rate.
Weed prices fluctuate over time and a solid tax makes no sense!

Re: Excise tax is way too high for farmer!

There was a document out by a think tank called the RAND corporation.
The document said that once fully legalized they projected the cost to plummet to 500$ a pound.
How can the state add 150 to this cost plus the cost of trimming / testing / distributor fees / transportation and cultivation tax?
Either the buyers / distributors are delusional and will have to pay more or all the small farmers are going out of business?
Am i missing something here?  lol

Re: Excise tax is way too high for farmer!

I also can agree.
As a small farmer i cannot come up with these high costs upfront.
Also the Cultivation tax is way too high!
Seems no one really cares about small farmers!
