    SALEM, Ore. - The State of Oregon has re-classified how it views marijuana.

    The State Board of Pharmacy voted Wednesday to recognize pot as a drug that has medical use.

    The move came because of a law passed last year that ordered marijuana to be removed from a list of drugs that have "high abuse potential and no acceptable medical use."

    Marijuana will now be what is known as a "Schedule II controlled substance."

    That's a drug that has medical use but still has "high abuse potential."

    Oregon becomes the first state in the nation to make marijuana anything less serious than a Schedule I drug.
