pulse issue - tobacco control
Big Tobacco will try anything to protect profits
Big Tobacco will try anything to protect its profits. In this case, it's at the expense of Montana's health. Earlier this month they pulled a move right out of their nationwide playbook - mounting a legal challenge to I -185. While this move isn't a complete surprise it's unfortunate to see it happening here in Montana.
Thankfully we got word late last week that the courts rejected the challenge to the I-185 ballot statement.
Thank you for your support on this issue and we hope we can count on you to vote YES on I-185 in November!
