Cigarettes would be illegal in Oregon under proposed bill
How far will these people go? Cigarettes illegal? Currently, you can posses and smoke marijuana in both Colorado and Washington State. Given the proximity to Washington State and the shared culture of that region, I find it incredibly ironic that soon pot smokers may have nothing to fear while cigarette smokers would have to hide in the shadows.Cigarette smokers living in (or passing through) Oregon, beware. The state legislature is currently considering a bill that would make nicotine a Schedule III controlled substance, making it illegal to possess or distribute cigarettes without a doctor's prescription. If the bill passes, anyone who violates its provisions would face up to a year in prison, a $6,250 fine or both.
Being a non-smoker, it would never affect me but I can tell you that if this law passes I will be boycotting all things Oregon!
