If you’re a regular smoker, you may want to keep an eye on a new bill in the Oregon Legislature

Rep. Mitch Greenlick, from Portland, is sponsoring a bill that makes cigarettes a Schedule III controlled substance, meaning it would be illegal to possess or distribute cigarettes without a doctor’s prescription. Under the proposal, offenders would face maximum punishments of one year in prison, a $6,250 fine or both.
