...Smoking and health is of little concern to the African people and it seems not to be a popular issue among them. However, if an anti-smoking campaign supported by religious leaders and/or the medical profession is developed, this could seriously affect consumption because of the mentality of the Africans, and their faith in their religious leaders and doctors.

Through ALEC, Global Corporations Are Scheming to Rewrite YOUR Rights and Boost THEIR Revenue$

Through the corporate-funded American Legislative Exchange Council, global corporations and state politicians VOTE BEHIND CLOSED DOORS to rewrite laws in YOUR state that govern YOUR Rights. These so-called "model bills" erode protections for ordinary Americans in almost every area of law and often directly benefit huge corporations and their CEOs. These bills thwart reasonable regulation of corporate activities that affect our health, our economy, our environment, our democracy, and our liberty. Legislators are elected by the people for the people, not to represent corporations. Through ALEC, corporations have "a VOICE and a VOTE" on specific changes to the law that are then proposed in YOUR state. DO YOU?
