    Heard that they want to ban smoking everywhere but the casino. Why not the casino? There are casinos all over the country that are smoke fre2(The Alton Belle in Illinois and the town of Blackhawk, Colorado are but two examples). They have smoking rooms or areas for their smoking guests. The change has not hurt the casinos and as a non smoker, I spend more time and therefore money in the smoke free venues.

    Current score: 0
