    New Illinois law fines cigarette butt littering $1,500

    http://fox2now.com/2013/12/31/new-illinois-law-fines-cigarette-butt-littering-1500/

    (KTVI) – A new law takes effect in Illinois on New Year’s Day that will throw the book at those throwing cigarette butts out their car windows. The fine could go as high as $1,500.

    The law, passed last summer in Springfield, has plenty of detractors. Many feel the fine is simply too high for the offense.

    the important thing here is that you can still toss coffee cups out the car and only be dinged for up to $500

    I quit just over 2 years ago 760 days X 20 smokes a day =14,600 +or- at least half of those buts would have been tossed out the Window.
    Or 10.5 million in fines.

    The cool thing is that a lot of terrorists smoke. If we start hauling in smoking litterers, we're bound to snag some terrorists.

    I think smokers are huge fags but it pisses me off that we're singling them out. It's not illegal to be a faggot. This is goddamn America.

    I approve of this. Can't stand those fucking things; what an eyesore! Tossing them is flaccid and weak and lazy.

    Human bodies thrown out of cars is punishable by 'a stern, rebuking glance not to exceed three seconds'.

    We need to be to put that on the checklist to ask them if they are terrorists. If they say yes, then certainly note that on the fine.

    The don't have the balls to push for an all out smoking ban so instead they come withi all of all of this bullshit. At this point I would understand if smokers started their own discrimination campaign. Fuck it, everyone else is.

    Only a matter of time before smokers are labeled as lung extremists.
