The Oregon Cannabis Tax Act initiative has officially qualified for the November ballot, according to the Oregon Secretary of State office. If approved by voters the initiative would make both marijuana and industrial hemp legal under state law. Marijuana would be legalized for adults over the age of 21, and the initiative would allow the commercial sale of marijuana through highly regulated state-licensed stores.
