It's almost like a prohibition on cigarettes.

Because we all know how well prohibition worked.

Other drugs and substances that are considered Schedule III controlled substances are ketamine, lysergic acid and anabolic steroids

And if I can't juice up, snort some Special K, and then drop a hit of acid, why should smokers be able to enjoy themselves?

In an unjust world, the just man will be in jail.

Anyone who votes for this law is a failure as a human being. Anyone who enforces it is a disgrace to the title "policeman", and the person(s) who have proposed are not of sound mind and they should be booted from office for incompetence.

Oregon voters, get your pens out. You know what you must do.

I'm an Oregon voter. If this makes it to my ballot (likely in May), I'll vote against it. But being from Oregon, I'm used to having to vote against stupid laws, this is nothing new.

It's strange. The same people who seem to want to illegalize cigarette smoking are the same ones trying to legalize marijuana.

But, like, cigarettes are evil tools of the Corporate Hate Machine that wants to, like, kill our kids, y'know? And Weed, man... That's the cure for everything, man. Plus it gets me high as fark, man!

Welcome to Oregon.

I don't think it should be. Three stupid law proposals and you're out. Forever. Crimson lettered, blackballed, whathaveyou. They just kick your butt right down the stairs of the state house and your hat and briefcase are thrown after and you're not longer allowed to be a representative. Your political opponent from that district with the next highest votes is sworn in as your successor same day.

Now THAT'S a law that could get some public traction.

Yeah. And if pot is ever legalized, it'll become 'corporate' just as much as tobacco ever was.

So, it'll be OK to ban it then?

But more to the point for me, how will this effect cigars!!!!

You know, in case I get a chance to visit Oregon(on my to do list)

Yes. Tobacco is legal, then becomes 'corporate.' People hate the corporate cancer sticks, fight to make it virtually illegal. But at the same time, they fight to make pot legal. Then pot becomes all 'corporate,' and the people once again fight the corporate smoke machine to illegalize pot once again. And now we've come full circle.

Weird how the same places moving to liberalize marijuana laws are simultaneously toughening laws on tobacco.

Hint: no matter what plant you burn and inhale the smoke of, it's not very good for your lungs.

Not saying either should be illegal. But it's weird the disconnect we have sometimes.

Feinstein should push this nationally. She likes to ban stuff. Hobby I think.

Obviously didn't read the thread before posting. I see this point has already been made.

Carry on.

Well we need to close the cigarette loophole somehow. Right now anyone of any age can get ahold of these sticks of death with only token laws stopping their distribution. How many people have to die so some person's addiction to cigarettes can be met? It's just not worth it.

A cigarette has no other purpose than to kill. Something must be done about it.

Snorting expensive cornflakes sounds like it would do some really bad damage to your nose, I can see why the government regulates it.

Then in a decade when everyone is smoking weed and stinking up the place, but tobacco has become more of a boutique thing done exclusively by cigar lovers the pendulum can swing back the other way.

/cigar smoker, I know my shiat stinks and I don't do it around people

There is no disconnect. There are no current laws, or any that I'm aware of with any sort of substantial support to make marijuana smoking less prohibitive than cigarette smoking. As far as I know, in states that have legalized marijuana the rules outlawing smoking in restaurants, bars, office buildings, 25 feet from entrances, etc. apply to both cigarette and marijuana smoking.

Cigarettes should be banned, as should blunts. Tobacco products, such as chewing tobacco and nicotine vaporizers should be allowed. Similarly, marijuana products, such as pot in food products and cannabis vaporizers, should be allowed.

The difference is the affect on other around you. I'm all for your ability to enjoy yourself, relax, whatever, so long as it doesn't harm unwilling participants.

I think that's pretty reasonable, but, then again, I'm not part of a multi-billion dollar industry based on lethal products, threatened by support for non-lethal alternatives and legalization of competition.

Just checked and yep schedule I

Semantic Warrior: So, hypothetically this passes, what would warrant a prescription for cigarettes? What doctor would even do it, considering the patient could just turn around and sue them for malpractice?


Came to say this, basically. Are there any provisions in this bill that provide for allowing such a prescription? Has the AMA been consulted as to the practicality of passing this type of legislation that affects doctors in OR?

/has Phillip Morris been consulted as to the appropriate bribe contribution necessary to have this bill removed from consideration?

Doesn't matter what is next to their name, one way or another, both Repubs and Dems think they can take better care of you than you can.

That's not at all true. If so, we'd be pushing for cigarettes to be schedule I not schedule III.

It's a stupid law, but then the fact that ganja is illegal is stupid too.

I'm sure Big Tobacco is gearing up with plenty of money to defeat this bill. I also like to think that the rest of the officials know this is a dumb idea and would not let it pass.

Then again, this is Oregon so who knows...

2013-01-24 10:52:43 AM
At least they aren't trying to say that tobacco is as horrible as the devil weed. We all know that cigarettes have more medicinal properties than those deadly marijuana plants and putting them in Schedule III will finally prove that.
