Washington state tries to collect marijuana sales tax

SEATTLE — The Washington Department of Revenue has launched a statewide effort to collect sales tax from medical marijuana dispensaries.

Spokesman Mike Gowrylow says the department mailed letters to 90 dispensaries and related organizations on Friday, insisting that medical marijuana is not exempt from state sales tax and dispensaries must collect that money and turn it over to the state.

The letter also warned them that dispensaries must also pay the state business and occupation tax.
