Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of South Dakota:
Section 1. That chapter 10-45 be amended with a NEW SECTION:
A tax of fifteen percent is imposed on the gross receipts of all sales of marijuana and marijuana products. This tax is in lieu of the tax imposed pursuant to § 10-45-2.
Section 2. That chapter 10-45 be amended with a NEW SECTION:
The department shall appropriate the revenue collected pursuant to section 1 of this Act to cover the costs incurred by the department in carrying out its duties to collect the revenue pursuant to section 1 of this Act.
If the remaining revenue does not exceed ten million dollars in a tax year, the remaining revenue must be deposited into the state general fund.
