Let’s start with the good news. Recreational marijuana sales in Oregon are far outpacing projections by state economists. In a recent economic report, the state’s Office of Economist Analysis noted the rapid changes in Oregon’s marijuana business. They are now revising their tax revenue projections up to $26.8 million for the 2017-2019 period and up to $20.3 million for the 2019-2021 period. They also noted that further upward revisions are anticipated if current trends hold.
