I live in town and have been to other dispensaries here and around the state. This is the only one that I know of that charges a tax on their weed. After leaving I confirmed that there is no sales tax in the state of Oregon and like I said, no other shop I've been to in this state has charged tax. So either the guy I spoke with today was nickel and diming people, or they really do have some weird tax that makes their pot more expensive. Either way- there are other shops right around the corner and, in the area, that are cheaper and just as good.
