SHAME ON SMOKE FREE ILLINOIS!
UPDATE TO: "Veterans smoking issue"
More lies and phony promises from IL before Smoke Free Illinois was enacted. Watch the video! Veterans are not receiving the consideration dogs are given.....after all, dogs are legally allowed within restaurant patio areas in Illinois now, but smokers are not! These are our veterans' homes! Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs is "looking into the issue" now and all bets are off on any relief for veterans in the foreseeable future, according to their spokesperson. Her logic paraphrased: "Well, they have to go out in the cold anyway to get to a smoking shelter..."
For adults who smoke and still believe in preserving our civil rights.
