Portland Rep. Mitch Greenlick introduced the bill in the Oregon State Legislature in an attempt to reduce the number of addicted people, but has received criticism from smokers and non-smokers alike who believe the initiative is not feasible.

Under Greenlick’s proposal, smokers would be charged with a misdemeanor and face up to one year’s imprisonment and a $6,250 fine for being caught with a cigarette or any of the other Schedule III controlled substances, including ketamine, lysergic acid and anabolic steroids.

Why does the gov hate tobacco? Phillip Morris is the largest corporate taxpayer in the U.S. Smokers pay the highest sales taxes, an estimated 67%, die youngest and don't collect gov pensions. Smokers contribute more to health care costs and use them for what... 30 years less? than non-smokers so why the antipathy? From a gov POV if everyone smoked their profits would be massive and if nobody smoked we'd all live to 100 and collect pensions. uhoh.gif

We've been wondering the same thing Shadow. 13.gif Makes no sense. It's not like they care about our health in any other aspect, so why tobacco? I'm not promoting it in any form, it's just odd. hmm.gif

Oh and it's 10 years. Still a lot of savings. dunno.gif

Does nicotine put up a barrier to mind control similar to THC? Was a rhetorical question of course but things don't add up here.
On the one hand all Americans are terrywrists and can be droned, incarcerated, or breitbarted at any time, and they worry about cigarettes? What the fuckity ğck ğck ? 13.gif

I would expect if it did put up a barrier then it would have been outlawed long ago, just like THC...wait...they are legalizing that now, so nevermind. dunno.gif

I only asked because most people are on meds including our leaders, I would assume.

There is something so inherently wrong with people in positions of pseudo authority these days... as if a prerequisite exists to find the dumbest ass hole possible and make them a king.

Just another proposed law to ignore if enacted.

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

gotta luv those asshats in the gov on the day this was thought of that person must have been trying to quit and had a nic fit so they thought if they're going to have a shitty day why not make others too, bet later that day they were found at their local dd's (dunkin donuts) scarfing down as many cruellers as they could fit in their yap gaah.gif but to be honest the thought of going to a dr to get a script to get something that'll wind up killing you later is about as smart as going to see a dog meow

Quote:The study estimating that 100,000 Americans die each year from their prescriptions looked only at deaths from known side effects. That is, those deaths didn’t happen because the doctor made a mistake and prescribed the wrong drug, or the pharmacist made a mistake in filling the prescription, or the patient accidentally took too much.

'Dog meow' rofl.gif rofl.gif gotta remember that one chuckle.gif

I think it's so they can tax it all they like. they'd never get away with taxing something not unhealthy like that. Not that I care how they tax tobacco, but I sure do wonder about the antipathy to something that is so lucrative for the gov.
