Marijuana Tax Data

The marijuana tax reports show tax revenue collected monthly as posted in the Colorado state accounting system. (For more information, please see the Marijuana Taxes | File page.)

The table below shows medical and retail marijuana tax and fee collections totals by calendar year starting in 2014. Although sales of medical marijuana began prior to 2014, the Department of Revenue did not report tax collection data until February of 2014, after retail marijuana sales began.
