Bill Proposes Prescriptions For Cigarettes

01.24.13 10:01 PM

SALEM, Ore. (UPI) — An Oregon lawmaker has proposed making it illegal to possess or distribute cigarettes without a doctor’s prescription.

The bill, sponsored by State Representative Mitch Greenlick of Portland, classifies cigarettes as a Schedule III controlled substance, such as ketamine, lysergic acid and anabolic steroids, KPTV Portland reported Wednesday.

“The state Board of Pharmacy may adopt rules placing requirements and limitations on the sale or transfer of products containing nicotine,” the bill states.

Offenders of the bill would face maximum punishments of one year in prison, a $6,250 fine or both.

“I think it’s pretty crazy,” said Juan Silva of Salem. “I don’t see it going through. It’s going to be something to watch for, but I don’t think it’ll pass.”
