    Pharmacy board to vote on pot classification

    The Oregon State Board of Pharmacy will hold a public meeting Tuesday on the re-classification of marijuana.

    The forum comes less than a month before a vote to determine the drug's new classification ranging from a two to a five. The state legislature passed a measure to downgrade marijuana from a class one.

    The change is the first of its kind in the country and means the drug is viewed as having a medical benefit and also downgrades the severity of marijuana-related crimes.

    I'm not entirely sure what re-classification means, but would it be possible that marijuana receives such a low classification out of this vote thus making it legal to purchase like you would cough syrup?

    This would be extremely encouraging news for the rest of the world if out of all the countries, America leads the way with the beginnings of sane drugs policy.......the rest of the world must surely follow. It would be interesting to see the wording of any legalisation/de-criminalisation and how that may reflect UN policy.
