This exchange would be treated as a delivery of a schedule II controlled substance. It would be a Class B Felony in Oregon with a possible maximum jail sentence of 10 years of prison.

In order to convict you of the crime of Delivery Of A Controlled Substance, the prosecutor would have to prove that you unlawfully, intentionally or knowingly delivered a specified controlled substance listed in Schedules I, II, III or IV of the Federal Drug Schedules.
