How Oregon Distributes its Recreational Marijuana Tax Revenue

As Oregon begins to publish their first ever reports on tax revenue received from the sale of recreational marijuana, many ask where this money goes.


The Oregon recreational marijuana tax revenue does not go into the General Fund for the state, and are not distributed until after start-up and administrative costs for the state have been covered.


So where does the money go?


Good Causes


Looking down the list of causes that the tax revenue is distributed to, we see the largest proportions of distributions going to schools, mental health and more. We believe this to be a great system for Oregon, as well as a model that can be used to guide other states as they consider making the move to recreational marijuana reform. 


Distribution Breakdown

  • Common School Fund - 40%

  • Mental Health, Alcoholism, and Drug Services Account - 20%

  • Oregon State Police - 15%

  • Cities (by formula, if not opted-out of licensing) - 10%

  • Counties (by formula, if not opted-out of licensing) - 10%

  • Oregon Health Authority - 5%
