    Chicago, IL - Fight Back against misinformation!

    If you live in, work, or visit the city of Chicago, you may have noticed billboards and posters around town that make wildly inaccurate statements about vapor products. After being visible for more than a month now, CASAA is hearing accounts that the “Vaping Truth” campaign is causing confusion among consumers and has discouraged some smokers from trying vaping as an alternative.

    If you believe that Chicago’s #VapingTruth campaign is deceptive, if you know of a smoker who has decided not to try vapor products because of the misinformation in this campaign, you can take action by filing complaints through the proper channels:

    File a Consumer Complaint:

    Illinois Attorney General Home Page

    How did you pay for this? WITH YOUR TAX DOLLARS!

    Contact the Chicago Department of Public Health
    By Phone: 312.747.9884

    Be sure to explain why you believe this campaign is deceptive.

    Mention that spreading misinformation erodes the public’s trust in the department of health and in public health organizations in general.

    On the Attorney General Site is a Consumer Complaint form... it is rather quick and easy. Here is the law in Illinois:
    (815 ILCS 510/2) (from Ch. 121 1/2, par. 312)
    Sec. 2. Deceptive trade practices.
    (a) A person engages in a deceptive trade practice when, in the course of his or her business, vocation, or occupation, the person:
    (7) represents that goods or services are of a
    particular standard, quality, or grade or that goods are a particular style or model, if they are of another;
    (8) disparages the goods, services, or business of
    another by false or misleading representation of fact;
    (12) engages in any other conduct which similarly
    creates a likelihood of confusion or misunderstanding.
    (b) In order to prevail in an action under this Act, a plaintiff need not prove competition between the parties or actual confusion or misunderstanding.
