It is unfortunate that people donate money to this organization, thinking that it will go to find cures for cancer. In reality, it goes toward partisan political lobbying, such as lobbying for bans on smoking.

Where is the proof of this? I'de be interested in seeing this.

@Gigs: That is not accurate. Lobbying would violate the American Cancer Society's nonprofit status. They have an entirely separate organization for this, called ACS CAN (Cancer Action Network: acscan.org). No money raised at any Relay For Life, including the SL Relay, goes to this organization. Relay money goes to cancer research and patient programs.
