Tax Income

Tax revenue generated from the cannabis industry has grown exponentially since legalization.

The City of Camas alone has missed out on nearly $6.8 million in tax revenue since legalization. This was figured by calculating out the percentage of Clark County’s population that resides in Camas/Washougal which is about 8.2%. There have been $184 million retail sales in Clark County since 2014.

Proportionally, that would be approximately $15.1 million sales Camas/Washougal has missed out on. The excise and local sales tax for cannabis is 37%, which equals out to $6.8 million in missed tax revenue. This is a revenue generating opportunity that could have occurred in Camas and were instead recognized in the City of Vancouver. Read More
