Oregon Bill Would Make Cigarettes Controlled Substances
An Oregon lawmaker has introduced a bill that would make cigarettes a Schedule III controlled substance. That means it would be illegal to possess or distribute cigarettes without a doctor’s prescription.
Other Oregon Schedule III drugs include ketamine, LSD, and anabolic steroids.
Sponsored by Rep. Mitch Greenlick (D-Portland), the bill, House Bill 2077, would make violations a Class A misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of up to one year in prison, a $ 6,250 fine, or both. The same penalty would apply to both possession and distribution.
The bill directs the state Board of Pharmacy to “adopt rules to classify nicotine as a Schedule III controlled substance.” It would also require people involved in tobacco transactions keep records and to “forward the records to the State Police if directed to do so by the department.” Failure to do so would also be a Class A misdemeanor.
The bill had a first reading last week and has been referred to the speaker’s desk for committee assignment. As of Thursday, it had not been assigned to a committee.
