Hines was a founder of the PM-organized smokers' rights group the American Smokers Alliance (ASA), along with vocal smokers rights advocate Stephen Handman. ASA received funding from Philip Morris [Ref. 2025385639, 2046900655/0666, 2073816607] . Philip Morris worked through ASA to run attack advertising against public health advocates that the company could not run itself. In 1995 a group called the "130/10 Club" organized by Handman ran ads in the Washington Times attacking anti-tobacco researcher Stanton Glantz and urging Congress revoke his National Cancer Institute funding to study tobacco company funding of legislators.
