No Additional Sales Tax on Marijuana

Court Agrees, No Special Sales Tax

It was decided that Adams County cannot assess additional sales tax on the sale of recreational marijuana in incorporated Adams County. The Court of Appeals ruling in December 2016 reversed an Adams County District Court decision made during the fall of 2016 upholding the tax which was challenged by the cities of Northglenn, Aurora, and Commerce City. The Colorado Supreme Court declined to review the case as requested by the county, thus upholding the decision made by the Court of Appeals.
