State Representative Mitch Greenlick doesn't think his proposed law - which would require you to have a prescription to buy a pack of cigarettes, will make it through the Legislature;  but he's trying to make a point about the harm tobacco use does to public health.  House Bill 20-77 would make nicotine a Schedule 3 Controlled Substance, and illegal possession and distribution could lead to a year in prison and a $6200 fine.  Greenlick tells Willamette Week quote: "Having a substance that addictive for sale over the counter just seems wrong." If it doesn't pass, he hopes it will help improve the chances of another tobacco tax increase.
