State Rep. Mitch Greenlick representing Portland, Oregon says nicotine is as dangerous as heroin and methamphetamine. He believes that tobacco should be outlawed. He’s been pushing a bill since 2009 that would make it a crime to possess nicotine without a physician’s prescription.
This is one time Big Pharma is allowed to take a crack at him next election. He apparently doesn’t know that the Robert Woods Johnson Foundation, who is funded by Johnson and Johnson, makes billions of dollars a year on their nicotine based products. They have also spent billions to convince legislators to ban smoking. Looks like their brainwashing techniques have boomeranged.
