If you’ve read any of our posts about vaping in Chicago, you already know that Illinois is not friendly to its vapers. Now there’s a new Illinois vaping bill that seeks to raise the legal age to buy tobacco and vape products from 18 to 21. If you live in the state, we urge you to take action to oppose Illinois vaping bill HB 3208 and keep vape products accessible for more smokers. There are a couple of ways that you can fight for the cause. Attend the Public Hearing on Tuesday, March 7, 2017.
