See How Recreational Users Can Get Lower Prices on Marijuana

Arizona Recreational Cannabis Sales

Arizona recreational marijuana sales started in January 2021 at most dispensaries, and many of the state’s recreational marijuana consumers are already considering getting a medical marijuana card because it would save them 16% in tax per marijuana purchase — a tax not imposed on medical marijuana patients.

Many dispensaries have decided to charge recreational marijuana customers a similar price for marijuana as medical marijuana patients. However, the 16% excise tax can add up quickly for rec users.

“Between the (medical marijuana) application fee and doctor’s appointment, a 2-year license (medical marijuana card) can cost up to $300,” Fox 10 reported. “However, patients don’t have to pay the 16% tax… A patient would need to spend more than $1,875 over two years to break even on sales tax.”

If an adult-use cannabis consumer plans on spending more than $80 per month on marijuana, then they’d save money in the long run by getting a medical marijuana card. Medical marijuana patients can also purchase and possess more marijuana and concentrates than recreational users — up to 2.5 ounces — and buy edibles with a higher potency.
