We at Marijuana Stocks wanted to give an update to our Connect the Dots report we put out yesterday, but first we need to give you some very important information!

Cannabis Wheaton (KWFLF) (CBW.V) has brought on syndicate agents including Canaccord Genuity Corp & Eight Capital to raise more than $50M CAD for their Cannabis Streaming business model. This raise will set the bar for other Canadian firms as it will represent one of the single largest capital raises in the history of the cannabis industry, that is not directly focused on cultivating. With this, Cannabis Wheaton is now heavily cashed up and one would hope that means management will begin aggressively working towards securing accretive deals that create value for shareholders and expand their overall reach.

First and foremost, we can only speculate what the company’s plans are with proceeds raised with regards to specific direct investment, but we expect to see the company use this capital to sign a new streaming partnership agreement with one of Canada’s major cultivators. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide updates as we get them. Now, let’s discuss what happened with trading on Tuesday, May 23, 2017.

In the pre-market hours, Cannabis Wheaton announced a private placement in the amount of $50,000,000 CAD which we referenced above as a truly a monster raise. Pending that news and at the company’s request, the Canadian exchange halted trading for the announcement of the news. FINRA then also issued a code U1 halt in the U.S. (that is NOT an SEC regulatory halt). This type of halt refers to a stock that is listed on a foreign exchange and gets halted by that exchange (in this case Canada) so FINRA must then also halt trading in the duel listing in the U.S.. This means no one could buy or sell shares of Wheaton until 3:15pm EST when the Canadian exchange and FINRA lifted the temporary halt and trading resumed.

The price of the stock adjusted for the financing news and opened for trade at $1.04 on the U.S. side. This is a nice discount compared to where the stock was trading prior to the news considering the stock had recently made a huge move on Monday after trading €4.9 million on the German exchange and $7.4 million CAD with Cannabis Wheaton (OTC KWFLF) (TSX CBW.V) gaining nearly 138% in the 3 days prior to the financing news. We expect the market to begin reflecting the opportunity for Cannabis Wheaton Corp. as their business model is cutting edge and their CEO Chuck Rifici has a proven record within the cannabis industry.

Pursuant to an agreement between MAPH and Cannabis Wheaton (KWFLF) we were hired for 30 Days to publicly disseminate information about (KWFLF) including on the Website and other media including Facebook and Twitter. We are being paid $150,000 (CASH) for and were paid “0” shares of restricted common shares of Cannabis Wheaton. We may buy or sell additional shares of (KWFLF) in the open market at any time, including before, during or after the Website and Information, provide public dissemination of favorable Information.

As the hatred towards legalizing marijuana continues grows for U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions he has repeatedly hinted at a possible crackdown against states that have approved recreational or medical marijuana sales, different members of Congress have introduced bills directed at improving the way the federal government deals with marijuana, including its designation as a Schedule I narcotic by the Drug Enforcement Administration. But there’s disagreement among national leaders of the cannabis community about whether it would be preferable to shift marijuana to Schedule II or Schedule III or to de-schedule it entirely.

HR 714, backed by Representative H. Morgan Griffith, a Virginia Republican, and introduced in January, would move marijuana from Schedule I, which falls into the same category as heroin and recognizes no medical advantages, to Schedule II alongside cocaine, opium and other substances that can be used medically. Another Griffith bill, HR 715, calls for medical marijuana to be switched from Schedule I to different DEA classification, but doesn’t give the specifics on which one. And in April, Representative Matt Gaetz, a Republican from Florida, put forward HR 2020, which would place marijuana in Schedule III, where assorted stimulants (e.g., Benzphetamine), depressants (Amobarbital) and products such as Tylenol with Codeine are listed.

How Can (NORML) Further Help De-Schedule Marijuana

Still, these legislative efforts fall short in the view of Justin Strekal, political director for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML)

“NORML is committed to a de-schedule effort,”Strekal says. “The growing acceptance of marijuana reform and the growing consensus that we inevitably need to take cannabis out of Schedule I is demonstrated by the introduction of these bills, but quite frankly, we don’t think they go far enough. We want it to be regulated in a similar manner to alcohol.”

“We have a growing momentum in Congress, with the formation of the Congressional Cannabis Caucus,” a coalition that includes Colorado representatives Ed Perlmutter and Jared Polis, Strekal points out. He adds: “At the end of the day, we’ve already seen eight states legalize adult use, and we expect that number to grow significantly in the coming years. It’s time for the federal government to get out of the way.”

Mason Tvert, the Colorado-based spokesperson for the Marijuana Policy Project, has a similar feeling about de-scheduling.

“We believe that marijuana should be removed entirely from drug schedules, because it’s less harmful than alcohol and other products that are not included in the schedules,” Tvert says.

A bill can be killed in various ways especially ones dealing with legalizing marijuana for example obstruction, feet dragging, amendments, procedural snags or getting talked to death in a filibuster, just to give a few. In the case of Texas’ medical marijuana and decriminalization bills, even though each bill had enough support to pass, they never even came up for a vote before time ran out last Thursday night at midnight.

What Happened To The Bills On Marijuana Reform

A midnight deadline passed without the full House even taking up proposed House Bill 81 for consideration on marijuana reform. The bill would have essentially decriminalized the possession of small quantities of marijuana, lessening penalties to below that of most traffic tickets.

House Bill 2017, which would have legalized medical marijuana, met the same fate due to the House’s jam-packed calendar.
So now, both bills are dead in the water as stand-alone legislation.

However, the fact that they got as far as they did is historic for the marijuana industry in the state of texas and marijuana culture. Having made it out of committee, these two bills advanced further than any other high-profile marijuana-related bill in Texas by simply making it on to the calendar in the full House of Representatives.

State Reps. Joe Moody and Jason Isaac, lead sponsors of HB 81, had warned earlier in the week that it was unlikely the House would get to the decriminalization bill by the midnight deadline.

The legislators said they planned to look for ways in the final two weeks of the legislative session to resurrect it, such as by tacking it on as an amendment to another bill.

We can only hope the do because the next opportunity to pass this any type of bill dealing marijuana legislation won’t be until 2019—when the Texas legislature meets again.

A Revolutionary Cannabis Investment?

Some of the greatest investment minds in the world say, “You invest in management.” And since the birth of MarijuanaStocks.com, few management personnel have shined brighter than Cannabis Wheaton Income Corp. CEO Chuck Rifici. Mr. Rifici has accomplished with Cannabis Wheaton something that no other cannabis industry CEO has. The business model he has implemented is something that we feel every marijuana investor MUST know about. Cannabis Wheaton (KWFLF)(CBW.V) provides a very unique opportunity for marijuana investors by greatly reducing risk while still maintaining tremendous upside potential.

But before we explain the Cannabis Wheaton business model and why we feel EVERY investor should know about it, let’s first take a look at Chuck Rifici. Because as we said earlier, “you invest in management.” And there may not be a more recognizable managerial figure who has done more for the marijuana industry than Mr. Rifici.

Invest in Management

Chuck Rifici is responsible for co-founding and taking public the largest full-scale producer of government-sanctioned marijuana as its CEO in April 2014; a company by the name of Tweed Inc. whose name later changed to Canopy Growth Corp. (TWMJF)(WEED.TO). To this day, Canopy Growth remains the largest public cannabis company with a staggering market cap of approximately $1Billion. In 2016, WEED hit $17.86 approximately 550% higher than the IPO price. It is widely agreed to be the most successful marijuana company to go public and is seen as the benchmark and leader of the industry.

Take a look at how WEED stock has performed over the last 2 years:

When considering an investment in any company, it’s important to look at the management team. Who is leading the ship? Is this their first rodeo? Or have they already proven successful in bringing a company to market that has built shareholder value? Well, Chuck Rifici’s track record with co-founding Tweed speaks for itself and gives Cannabis Wheaton shareholders confidence that they have a marijuana industry trailblazer leading their ship.

But Rifici’s resume is filled with much more than just Tweed. In 2011, Rifici was appointed CFO of the Liberal Party of Canada by interim party leader Bob Rae. In 2014, Rifici was also named to the Top Forty under 40 by Ottawa Business Journal, named Alumnus of the Year by the University of Ottawa Faculty of Engineering, and received the Exceptional New Business Award by the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce.

Rifici also sat on the Board of marijuana starlets Supreme Pharmaceuticals (SPRWF) (SL.CN), Aurora Cannabis (ACBFF) (ACB.V), and CannaRoyalty (CNNRF) (CRZ.V). These board positions helped Rifici keep his ear to the ground, expand his network, and gain insight to the marijuana industry in both Canada and the U.S. He actually just resigned from his Supreme Pharma and Aurora Cannabis Board seats because of a slight conflict of interest but mostly to focus all of his time and energy towards building Cannabis Wheaton into a revolutionary cannabis company.

Cannabis Wheaton’s Streaming Model—Revolutionizing Cannabis Investment

Cannabis Wheaton is the first company to bring a streaming business model to the marijuana industry. This unique model can greatly reduce risk for investors while maintaining tremendous upside potential from a booming industry. Streaming business models are normally found in the mining industry and refer to when a company strikes a deal with a miner to purchase all or part of its future metal production in exchange for upfront cash. Perhaps the most notable example is silver giant Silver Wheaton (NYSE: SLW). This works well because mining is a very cash intensive business and requires a lot of upfront capital. And the cannabis industry is about to undergo a massive expansion that will be an serious capital burden on current marijuana producers.

Rifici has said that the marijuana industry must increase total production by 10 times the current rate in order to keep pace with the increased demand for marijuana once the drug is legalized for recreational use. Producers are barely keeping up with cannabis demand from just medical marijuana users, never mind when legal recreational use goes into effect.

Currently, there is only 1.4 million square feet of licensed medical marijuana production facilities in Canada. According to Rifici, 14 million square feet is needed to satisfy the upcoming demand. Such a massive expansion is a major financial burden and carries great risk for companies trying to expand so much so quickly. And that is where the opportunity lies for Cannabis Wheaton.

“We’re going to see tremendous growth in the industry…There have been a lot of announced expansions that fill maybe a third of that gap. But there’s still 6 or 7 million square feet that needs to be built out,” said the Rifici.

Under the streaming model, Cannabis Wheaton will provide marijuana producers with the necessary capital to expand their operations in exchange for a minority equity stake in the company and a portion of their future production at an agreed upon discounted price. The company will also provide their partners with guidance and expertise on facility construction, cultivation, and the licensing process. Rifici has brought to Wheaton several of the early key members of Tweed including the top cannabis legal team in Canada that has helped half a dozen Licensed Producers (LPs) obtain their licenses.

Cannabis Wheaton has already signed 16 streaming deals with 14 partners across 6 different provinces of Canada. Their partners’ credentials include:

  • 2 sales licenses.
  • 3 cultivation licenses.
  • 4 affirmation letters.
  • 5 advanced pre-affirmation stage applicants.

Through these agreements, Cannabis Wheaton already has access to 1.3 million square feet of cultivation by 2019, 30,000 registered medical marijuana patients, and nearly 40 medical cannabis clinics.

One agreement we feel worth mentioning specifically is the company’s deal with Broken Coast Cannabis Ltd., a British Columbia based medical cannabis producer that has established itself as a top provider of high grade cannabis products. Broken Coast’s clean tech production methods and systems deliver consistent premium cannabis. The company was also recently awarded one of the few 18-month Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulation (ACMPR) licenses, which is a testament to its compliance record.

Broken Coast and its entities will utilize the experience and capital of Cannabis Wheaton to accelerate expansion and scale production in a short period of time. Under the terms of the agreement between the companies, Broken Coast will source a proposed site to complement their current site. The parties expect the new location to accommodate at least 100,000 square foot state-of-the-art cannabis cultivation facility.

Broken Coast will operate the new facility in accordance with its industry best practices and the two companies will share the proceeds with Cannabis Wheaton receiving 49% of the product output.

5 Reasons to Consider Cannabis Wheaton

  1. Licensed Producer Diversification- Because the company is working with such a wide range of cannabis cultivation companies and receiving both an equity stake in those companies and a percentage of the end product, shareholder risk is spread out amongst several companies rather than just one.
  2. Exposure to Tremendous Upside- Usually, reducing risk results in reduced potential reward, too. But not in this case. Even with the reduced risk, shareholders are exposed to the explosive industry expansion that Rifici explained as being a 10x expansion. Current cannabis revenue numbers in Canada will pale in comparison to what we see once legal recreational use goes in effect. Cannabis Wheaton will hold an equity stake in many producers as well as owning portions of the end product at a discounted price.
  3. Geographic Diversification- Cannabis Wheaton has signed agreements with partners across 6 different provinces in Canada. This brings exposure to several different markets and acts almost as a loophole for the company to take advantage of a few question marks the industry has regarding distribution.
  4. Proven Business Model- The streaming business model has already been proven successful for some of the largest metal miners in the world. Silver Wheaton, a streaming company with a market cap of approximately $10Billion, went to this model because they generally have a bullish outlook on the price of silver. So, it makes sense for them to fund a miner’s drilling operations and expansion to purchase the future metal output at a steep discount. Similarly, Rifici and Cannabis Wheaton have a bullish outlook on the production rate and revenue numbers for marijuana in Canada expecting a 10x expansion of the industry. So, it makes sense to help fund the expansion in return for equity ownership and a portion of the end product.
  5. Successful Management- The team behind Cannabis Wheaton has already taken the largest producer of government-sanctioned marijuana public. And it was and remains the most successful IPO in the cannabis space and true leader of the industry. 


Ever since Rifici co-founded Tweed and brought the cannabis juggernaut public in 2014, investors wondered what his next project would be. Rifici said he is proud of what he built with Tweed but was ready to put the past behind him.

“I’m essentially moving on to what I think are far better opportunities in the space,” said the Cannabis Wheaton CEO.

It’s hard to imagine what opportunities could be more successful than a $1Billion market cap, top marijuana producing, cannabis leader that gained 550% from its IPO. But if anyone knows an opportunity in the marijuana space when they see one it’s Chuck Rifici.

Licensed Producers are already having trouble keeping up with demand from about only 130,000 registered medical marijuana patients. When legal recreational use goes into effect, demand is going to skyrocket. The current 1.4 million square feet of cultivation facility space simply isn’t going to cut it. Not even close. The entire industry is racing to undergo a massive expansion that will see cultivation space increase by about 10 times. That type of expansion is extremely costly and carries great risk for individual producers.

However, with their streaming business model, Cannabis Wheaton is de-risking the expansion while still giving investors exposure to the booming industry growth. With 16 agreements already inked with 14 different partners across 6 different provinces, Cannabis Wheaton could very well be revolutionizing the way investors capitalize on the cannabis industry.

The Canadian stock market was closed for Victoria Day yesterday and today, three marijuana stocks reported several significant developments. We have highlighted these developments below to help you focus on important trends sweeping the industry.

New Cannabis IPO to Raise $50+ Million

One of newest and most differentiated Canadian cannabis producers, Cannabis Wheaton (CBW.V: TSX Venture) (KWFLF) announced a $50 million private placement and engaged a syndicate of agents co-led by Eight Capital and Canaccord Genuity.

The firm is selling special warrants and convertible debenture units and will use the net proceeds for general corporate purposes, for the financing of its streaming partners pursuant its streaming agreements, and for general and administrative expenses.

Cannabis Wheaton is off to a great start after the company reported that MMCAP International Inc. SPC intends to subscribe for up to $20,000,000 of the offering. The offering is expected to occur on June 21st and the company granted the underwriters an over-allotment option which increases the offering to $57.5 million.

Cronos’ Breaks Ground on a Brand New 315,000 sq. ft. Facility

Today, Cronos Group’s (MJN.V: TSX Venture) (PRMCF) wholly-owned licensed producer, the Peace Naturals Project broke ground on a 315,000 sq. ft. expansion that includes a 286,000 sq. ft. production facility, a 28,000 sq. ft. greenhouse, and an additional 1,200 sq. ft. extraction lab.

Upon completion, the facility is expected to be the largest purpose-built indoor cannabis production facility in the world. The facility is expected to complete by November and fully operational by summer 2018. This expansion will bring Peace’s total estimated production capacity to 40,000 kg a year.

The facility is designed to GMP certification standards and will include:

  • An area for proprietary genetic breeding
  • Pharma lab for cannabinoid and terpene extraction, identification, and formulation
  • R&D space for analyzing metabolite enhancement and new lighting technologies
  • Tissue culture laboratory
  • Industrial-grade kitchen
  • Processing infrastructure that supports production from other facilities

Cronos is breaking ground on the greenhouse today and the facility will be used to collect data and implement advanced cultivation techniques that can be replicated at its other production facilities. The company’s extraction lab will augment capabilities in both purification and recombination of cannabinoid compounds to create innovative formulated products. The greenhouse and lab are expected by the end of the summer.

Aurora to Supply Resources to Support a Groundbreaking Legal Case

Today, the Canadians for Fair Access to Medical Marijuana (CFAMM) reported an investment by Aurora Cannabis (ACB.V) (ACBFF) that is of a different nature than its prior investments.

CFAMM announced that Aurora has committed financial and other resources to support Gordon Skinner’s defense in what might be a potentially precedent-setting medical cannabis insurance coverage case. CFAMM has been providing strategic support to Skinner and Aurora’s resources will ensure that Skinner can defend his case.

On January 30th, the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission ruled that the Board of Trustees of the Canadian Elevator Industry Welfare Trust Fund committed discrimination by denying coverage for the medical cannabis Skinner uses to manage chronic pain and other conditions resulting from a work-related injury that left him permanently impaired. Following the decision, the Board of Trustees filed an appeal against Skinner and the Commission in the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal. The appeal has been set for October 2, 2017.

Founded in 2014, Canadians for Fair Access to Medical Marijuana (CFAMM) is a federal non-profit, patient-run organization dedicated to protecting and improving the rights of medical cannabis patients. CFAMM’s goal is to enable patients to obtain fair and safe access to medical cannabis with a special focus on affordability, including private and public insurance coverage.

We want to commend Aurora on its commitment to improving the cannabis industry and supporting patients in need. This decision may have a lasting impact on the sector and could change the landscape of the Canadian medical cannabis industry.

1 – Costa Rica Marijuana Policy

A proposal to legalize both medical marijuana and industrial hemp in this Central American republic has been building a great deal of momentum over the last two years, and it seems to have picked up a bit more: The measure currently has the backing of key officials in Costa Rica’s public health system. If the law is enacted, the Department of Health would oversee a regulatory body charged with issuing licenses to farmers and distributors of both cannabis and all-purpose hemp.

2 – Canada Marijuana Policy

Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made a vow to decriminalize recreational cannabis in Canada, despite this past 4/20 his administration postponed the issue until later this year. In December, Trudeau’s government stated that it would examine a federal task force’s recommendation for legalizing possession of up to 28 grams of marijuana by adults 18 and older and allowing marijuana sales through licensed pot shops.

3 – Peru Marijuana Policy

Already somewhat pot-friendly, where under a quarter of cannabis is tolerated, this South American nation may be ready to legalize medical marijuana “for the treatment of serious and terminal illnesses.” Earlier this year, President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski’s administration recognized that the push to allow marijuana as medicine came about after law enforcement raided a home in Lima, where parents were cultivating marijuana to create CBD oil for more than 80 children suffering from seizures due to epilepsy.

4 – Ireland Marijuana Policy

A medical cannabis bill was outlined by the activist group People Before Profit was given a green light back in December 2016 by the Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Irish parliament. The measure would allow physicians to recommend marijuana for a variety of serious sicknesses. Ireland’s health minister confirmed that he would not try to stop the proposed legislation from reaching the committee stage. Legislators have asked the Health Products Regulatory Authority to weigh in on marijuana as medicine, and supporters believe that this will eventually create the way for a medical cannabis program.

5 – Brazil Marijuana Policy

The South American monster has slowly progressed on the issue of marijuana prohibition, partly out of a need to combat drug cartel violence. Personal possession and growing marijuana were decriminalized back in 2006; most recently, Supreme Court Justice Roberto Barroso publicly lamented Brazil’s failed War on Drugs and asked for legalizing marijuana outright. And in January of this year, the health-care regulator Anvisa issued the country’s first license to sell the medical marijuana concentrate Sativex, which is marketed in Brazil as Mevatyl.


The legal marijuana industry is the fastest growing industry in the world and investors are frequently trying to learn how to invest in marijuana stocks.

When We Connect the Dots, You Profit 
Connect the Dots Articles Have Returned 9,932% for Our Readers 

Over the last couple years, as the marijuana industry has taken flight, it has been our mission to help our readers make money from cannabis. Every once in a while we publish a “Connect the Dots” article highlighting a company or group of companies that we believe have tremendous near-term upside potential. By identifying these companies and providing insight and research otherwise unavailable to the mainstream investor, we have been able to help our readers gain as much as 9,932% in about two and a half years. That is the combined gain percentage that all of our Connect the Dots companies experienced in the weeks and months after we published an article. Let’s take a look at some of our biggest gainers:

These are just a few of our previous Connect the Dots highlights. And as you can see, the track record speaks for itself. It is our goal to literally connect the dots for our readers to help identify opportunity in this budding industry. And thus far we have done more than just identify opportunity; we have helped some earn a small fortune.

Now we know it’s impossible to have captured all of the 9,932% gains. So let’s say you were able to capture just half. A $5,000 investment would be worth $248,300. Again, that’s if you only captured half of the total gains.

The marijuana industry is at a very interesting stage of its development right now. Even with nearly 10,000% gains in the books, we still feel that we’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg. And it’s one mighty iceberg. We hope that you are happy with the content we provide and continue to read our articles on a daily basis. Because you never know when the next cannabis opportunity will bud.

Although the Canadian cannabis sector offers tremendous upside, investors need to be cautious and focus on companies that have a differentiated strategy.

Back in the gold rush, the miners did not make all the money. It was the ancillary business who profited then and although times have changed, the opportunity has not. We believe that investors need to take a different approach and diversify around the Canadian licensed producers.

We have highlighted three Canadian cannabis stocks that trade in both the United States and Canada which we think have long-term upside due to their respective strategy.

InMed Starting to Catch Fire

InMed Pharmaceuticals Inc. (IMLFF) closed Friday down 5.3% but the shares ended the week up more than 12% off its lows and we think this is a stock investors need to watch. IMLFF broke below its 20 and 50-day moving average on this move lower and we think the shares are set to move higher as trading volume was well below its weekly average on Friday.

Earlier this month, InMed filed a provisional patent application in the United States for a cannabinoid-based topical therapy for glaucoma. The company has taken steps to execute on its strategy and has several event-driven catalysts set to occur in the back half of the year.

Cannabis Wheaton is Changing the Game

One company that looks to have found a bottom and is trending higher is Cannabis Wheaton (CBW.V) (KWFLF). The shares continued to rally on Friday and ended the day up 15% and 16%, respectively. The Canadian symbol is trading at $1.58 while the United States symbol, KWFLF trades at $1.16. Cannabis Wheaton has taken the licensed producer game to a different level and we believe there is significant value in several of its deals.

Earlier this month, Cannabis Wheaton released its roster of streaming deals and its partners include 14 companies based in six provinces across Canada. Of these companies, 2 have sales licenses (Broken Coast and Green Relief), 2 have cultivation licenses, 4 have affirmation letters and 6 are advanced pre-affirmation stage applicants.

Canadian Biotech Breaks Out of Oversold Territory and Set to Rally

Vinergy (VNNYF) traded almost 900,000 shares on Friday and VNNYF rallied well off its lows of the day. We think this massive increase in trading volume is significant and the shares no longer in oversold territory.

We see significant upside to current levels as VIN (the Canadian symbol) remains halted due to closing of the MJ Biopharma deal. Vinergy recently announced that it was increasing the size of its non-brokered private placement due to the high demand and this is a stock investors need to have on their radar

At the office of Monterey County’s Treasurer-Tax Collector, armed- guards now stand watch over the parking lot and lobby door. A recently restored front office now serves as a secure drop-off point for taxpayers hauling big bags full of cash. A fleet of state-of-the-art currency counters stand ready to quickly record unprecedented sums of paper bills. And the regularly scheduled armored truck pickups are now passing through at a swifter clip.

Monterey County is among the many towns in California and counties discovering a tough reality as they position themselves for a share of the state’s newly legalized marijuana proceeds: Tax collecting in cannabis country comes with its share of obstacles. And there’s no “how to” guide.

“It’s been a challenge just to craft all of this from scratch,” county Treasurer-Tax Collector Mary Zeeb stated from her office in Salinas. As of the first of this year, all licensed medical pot growers in unincorporated Monterey County owe Zeeb’s office $2 for every square foot they farm. That’s thanks to a measure passed by an overwhelming 74 percent of the county’s voters last November, who decided that if cannabis is going to be a mainly-legal local industry, the county treasury might as well get in on the action.

Among the list of questions that city fiscal analysts and county councilmembers are now puzzling over:

• What is the “sweet spot” tax rate that will keep local budgets in the black without chasing growers and vendors back into the black market?

• Who exactly are the officially licensed weed dealers in their jurisdiction?

• When taxing an industry that is effectively barred from the traditional banking sector, what do you do with all their cash?

• And just how do you audit a pot farm anyway?

“We set up our processes, and we hoped that they were going to work. So far, I’ve been pleasantly surprised that they mostly have,” says Zeeb, now processing the first quarter of collections.

Monterey County records taking in roughly $700,000 from 60 farmers. Those tax bills were based on self-report yield data from the farmers themselves, but once all the permits are finalized, Zeeb says each grower will be taxed based on his or her permitted acreage.

“This is kind of the startup period,” she says. “We had a very steep learning curve.”

Monterey County isn’t the only local government learning on the fly. This past election, more than 30 cities, and nine counties put marijuana tax propositions on the ballot. All but two were approved—and more measures have been scheduled during special elections ever since. These taxes mainly apply to medical marijuana but were designed to include recreational marijuana once the state begins issuing permits no sooner than the beginning of next year.
