U.S. Smokeless Tobacco has had an immense and strong presence at the Greeley Independence Stampede for many years, but it is no longer that way. In December 2007, the Greeley City Council voted 4-3 in favor of passing an ordinance that prohibited the giving away of free tobacco in city limits. This included the Greeley Stampede. However that next summer at the Stampede, US Smokeless still had a booth and were giving away free items like bandanas. This year, there is no trace of them there at all. The reason is unknown, but the outcome is good all the same: children and adults alike will not associate the cancer-causing products with the fun events of the Stampede. Congratulations to the Stampede and Greeley!
