Original message: The ballot measure seeks to tax marijuana at industrial levels, like alcohol and tobacco. But marijuana is currently being produced at boutique levels. A 40 to 50 percent tax level on a 5 dollar pack of cigarettes. pr a ten dollar bottle of hooch, is significantly different than on a 200 dollar ounce of marijuana. If they want to tax it at industrial levels, they need to allow industrial levels of production. Farm fields of marijuana would drive the price down to 10 dollars an ounce, and then the 50 percent tax would not be so onerous.
