Atlantic City Bans Smoking In Casinos

Atlantic City has extended its ban on smoking in all public buildings to include casino floors.

Effective October 15th 2008, you will not be allowed to smoke indoors except in designated in smoking lounges.

Would this ban on smoking in all public places affect your decision to visit Atlantic City? What if they did it in Vegas?



Comments & Discussion:

I don't smoke, never have, and I stick to non-smoking locations when I can. But this would be a tragedy if it passed for Vegas casinos. It's about embracing your vices, people! Smoking, drinking, gambling, sexing it up! Why can't people accept that, even if it is not their thing?

One of my favorite things about Las Vegas is that I can smoke cigars while I gamble. They are a bit of a package deal for me. I just wouldn't feel the same satisfaction and enjoyment if I had to gamble without my favorite stink stick in hand while doing so. I was already a bit astounded when Vegas banned smoking everywhere but the casinos, but killing it in the casinos too would really kill a big portion of my happy thoughts of Las Vegas.

I'm not a smoker either. I do sometimes while I'm drinking but that's about it. If they banned it in casinos it would suck. Nothing like sitting next to an old lady whos puffin away and between drags on the cigarette she has to take a hit off the ol' oxygen tank.
