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.
