Illinois Smokers Rights

Meeting
The Windy City Inn
Chicago
April 2, 2006
We hope you will join us to take an active part in our plans to fight Illinois' activities to demonize and persecute smokers and infringe upon our personal rights. WE NEED YOU!

Over 800,000 Chicago smokers are voters and 1,700,000 Cook County voters are smokers.

If you can't smoke, don't go. Keep your wallets shut.
