Housecall for Health: OR Considering Cigarette Ban
Some are calling it a new version of Prohibition: One U.S. state is considering a law that would make cigarettes illegal in the state.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
A proposal in Oregon to make cigarettes illegal may have the best intentions for public health. The bill would classify nicotine as a controlled substance – legal only with a doctor’s prescription – with possession leading to fines and even jail time.
Legislators say the ban could help prevent nearly half a million deaths every year, but other state lawmakers say, with almost 50 million American smokers, the ban is unrealistic and could lead to a black market in cigarettes.
