Should You Need a Prescription to Buy Cigarettes?

Oregon smokers are already the turd in the punchbowl at work and in public places. So Portland Rep. Mitch Greenlick’s brilliant idea to force people addicted to nicotine to beg their doctor for a prescription only serves to heap on more scorn and not actually accomplish anything meaningful – like getting people to quit smoking. If common sense still has a shred of relevance anymore, this bill won’t go anywhere and smokers ultimately won’t face a misdemeanor charge for partaking in what has been a legal activity for ages.

Josh Kaib from WATCHDOGWIRE - Oregon breaks it down nicely in this article.
