What betta way to start off March Madness by having a large turnout of IL smokers showing their madness at a state smoking ban by lighting up at a shop as part of a smoke-in!
John Hemminghaus, a West Frankfort, IL business owner, still plans to have a smoke-in at his business this Saturday, March 1. He's been threatened by state authorities to receive a $2,500 fine if he still plans on having the smoke-in. But we of IL Smokers Rights will set up a fund to help him pay for that fine.
I hear at least 200 smokers will be at that event. I can't attend because of thangs going on with my ailing mother, and the fact I don't have an easy way to reach that town since I don't drive. I intend on keeping up with it, since it sounds like this smoke-in will get local media attention. The smoke-in starts at noon in John's shop.
If any smokers want to contact John and give him support, here's his contact info.
Wounded Rig Inc
18349 Route 37
West Frankfort, IL 62896
That address is where the smoke-in will be held at.
