The Tax, Regulate and Control Cannabis Act of 2010 (state ballot initiative)

Okay, so… I’m just a lowly grad student and not a legislative analyst, but it seems to me that the definition of “Cannabis” encompasses “industrial hemp.” I don’t see any place where hemp is explicitly excluded, and the definition of Cannabis does not specify that it applies only to the psychoactive strains. The act purports to impose a tax of no less than $50 per ounce on Cannabis that is cultivated commercially and sold. To me, that would include industrial hemp. How do you interpret the language of this proposition? Will hemp be taxed at the same rate?

And of course, note the absence of a medical exemption.
