Keeping It Real In Oregon

Bill proposed in Oregon would make cigarettes prescription-only drugs
I've said it for years: if cigarettes and those who smoke them are as bad and evil as their detractors treat them, then there should be an outright, total ban.

Of course it will never happen. The tax revenue from cigarettes is too great for any governmental body to pass up. Even more so for Oregon, which taxes the hell out of them.

I have to admit, I have a perverse desire to see how it would go down. But I'd prefer it in a state I visit less often. Like California.

i want to see it. really.
i'm so fucking tired of the over-the-top treatment of tobacco and its users. its time to put up or shut up.
i'm a ex-smoker, but even when i was a unrepentant smoker... i still dared them.

I think we know what we'd see. And that's just for starters.
