Article: Missouri may not let legal weed companies pay taxes in cash. That could be a problem.

Late Monday, the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services issued a proposed rule governing the way licensed medical marijuana facilities should pay taxes and other money owed to state government.

The rule says that state-licensed companies that handle cannabis — for example, dispensaries or growing outfits — will be required to pay their Missouri taxes and fees “via any payment method normally acceptable to those agencies other than cash.”

That could be a problem. It’s not the way state-legalized cannabis companies have done business so far. Since the inception of medical marijuana in California in the 1990s, they’ve typically been all-cash operations.
