THERE IS NO SAFE LEVEL OF SECONDHAND SMOKE EXPOSURE

Secondhand smoke is the combination of smoke that is given off by the burning end of a cigarette, pipe or cigar, often called sidestream smoke, and the smoke that is exhaled from the lungs of a smoker (mainstream smoke). Tobacco burns at a lower temperature while smoldering (thus it doesn’t burn as cleanly), releasing more toxins into the air than are in the smoke actually inhaled by the smoker. Approximately 90% of the time they are lit, cigarettes are smoldering and generating air pollution that nonsmokers are forced to breathe. 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.
