April 2021 marks the 6 year anniversary of the smokefree law in New Orleans – a victory for the health of the city’s musicians, workers, and visitors. Nearly half of all states, more than 160 Tribal gaming properties and nearly 1,100 casinos do not permit smoking indoors. Learn more about the issue in this media call. ANR convened this call on April 28, 2021, to highlight momentum in smokefree casino work, why it’s important to health, and how profitable it can be for gaming.
