Editorial on smokfree casinos

Smokefree workplace laws not only save lives, but also boost parity for casino operators across regional gaming markets on this important health issue. We encourage the gaming industry to support PA and NJ in adopting strong, consistent smokefree indoor air laws to match those now taken for granted in nearby states like Delaware, Maryland, New York, Ohio, Maine, and Massachusetts. More than 500 U.S. casinos and gambling venues are now smokefree indoors. 82% of the US population are nonsmokers.
