Tax Day

Budtenders: Those who receive tips, don’t forget to count them as cash income! We aren’t tax professionals, but we think it is important to mention.

Arizona Patients, Listen up! The doctors are reporting longer than average wait times for card renewals due to tax season. Check your cards. If you’re set to renew soon, plan ahead for this extended wait time! We don’t want anyone losing their rights to medical marijuana.
