With state regulated and tribal gaming expanding at an exponential rate, casinos and other gaming venues are emerging as huge employers for local and state economies. Nationwide, casinos provide over one million jobs. Smokefree casinos ensure that these jobs don’t sicken or kill the people they employ.
If smoking is allowed within a casino, both employees and patrons are at risk. Secondhand smoke exposure from commercial tobacco is known to cause heart diseases, lung cancer and other breathing problems.
