​ A Medford, Oregon cannabis company owes the state more than $27 million in back taxes, the Salem Statesman Journal reports. The sum owed by American Patriot Brands represents the largest back-taxes total owed to the state.  

The state this month published a list of people and companies that owe the state more than $50,000 in back taxes, following the approval of a 2019 law allowing the list to be made public with the goal of increasing revenue collections. The list’s publication was delayed during the coronavirus pandemic as officials recognized the financial hardship some taxpayers faced. 

Notably, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission issued fraud charges in March against American Patriot Brands, its CEO, and five others for allegedly funneling investor funds into personal accounts and expenses.

Other cannabis companies on the list include:
