TIP: When you enter the Oil City dispensary or engage a Oil City marijuana delivery driver, keep your wallet in your pocket or bag. Wait and see if the dispensary asks for your identification to ensure you are of legal age to purchase cannabis in Pennsylvania.
Legal Oil City dispensaries, whether they be storefronts, delivery services, growers, distributors, manufacturers, or lab-testing facilities, must comply with many regulations and that costs money. These legal Oil City dispensaries have costs that are much higher than the black market and prior to the regulations being put in place. Unfortunately, those costs are passed down to the consumer at retail. This makes the price of legal marijuana products higher than the black market, much higher is some cases. After the cost of regulations, you have excises taxes and sales taxes. Excise tax is special tax that is placed on a product by law and is simply added to the price of the product. After the excise tax is added, then sales tax is calculated and the product price plus the excise tax amount is used to calculate the sales tax. Yes, you guessed right that there is a little bit of double tax there. This is very similar to alcohol and other consumer products that require excise tax and sales tax. Finally, since marijuana is still a Schedule 1 drug and outlawed by the Federal Government, legal marijuana businesses are not currently able to deduct any regular business expenses due to IRS section 280E. In conclusion, the reason legal Oil City dispensaries prices are higher than before is due to new taxes, the cost of compliance to new regulations, and the lack of general business expense deductions.
People who have been purchasing marijuana prior to legalization efforts may have a case of sticker shock when the make their first legal marijuana purchase from Oil City dispensaries. Now that the government is regulating marijuana there are new taxes, like alcohol, that need to be added to the price of the cannabis product being purchased. Compounding these new taxes are all the regulations that legal Oil City dispensaries must adhere to for their license to remain in an active status. These regulations are at times costly and a legal business has no other choice than to pass those costs on to the people buying legal Oil City marijuana in a retail establishment. Finally, since marijuana is still a Schedule 1 drug and outlawed by the Federal Government, legal Oil City dispensaries are not currently able to deduct any regular business expenses due to IRS section 280E. In conclusion, the reason Oil City marijuana prices are higher than before is due to new taxes, the cost of compliance to new regulations, and the lack of general business expense deductions.
State License Visible
When you go to a Oil City dispensaries website is the State license displayed? If a business is licensed, it has to show its customers the license number so they can audit that license if they want to do so. If the website has a license and license number, then they are likely legal, and it is safe to buy marijuana there. If the Oil City dispensaries website only says legal but does not display or communicate the State license number, then the business is likely NOT legal, and you should find another business who has a displayed license.
TIP: When you are ordering from a Oil City dispensary closely watch how the employees prepare your cannabis order. If your order is being packaged as a custom order and not provided as a pre-packaged product order, then you are likely in or ordering from a black market Pennsylvania dispensary.
TIP: Scan your receipt to the bottom and look for any itemized Pennsylvania excise taxes, Venango County taxes and Oil City local city taxes. These should be clearly present and added to your Total amount paid receipt.
TIP: Closely review the packaging of your cannabis product to find the legal lab tested label. All Pennsylvania cannabis businesses and legal Oil City dispensaries will only carry marijuana flower with lab tested labels present on the packaging.
