Why do you insist you impose your unhealthly asthama on others? You could easily stay home and gamble on the computer .
You could easily stay home and spend you last 2 bucks on a ciagarette lol. Get a life you are going to get very sick from your cancer sticks but if thats what you want go for it dont make me breathe it in.

P.S. Asthma is not a catching sickness it will notmake anyone else sick but your smoking kills people.

I only smoke in designated smoking areas. If you don't like smoke then keep your distance from my designated areas. It's your type that feels compelled to decide what I can or cannot do. You are the type that claims I must accept everything from smoking bans to same sex marriages. Just because you are such a miserable b*tch, you feel compelled to make everybody else near you equally miserable. You are an ugly person!

By golly, who'd have thought a smoker had intelligence enough to think up such a snappy response so quickly? What was it, a year and a third or so? Or were you waiting for word that she had died long since so that you'd be safe attacking her?

Anyone who has a problem with a no smoking casino can just slap a nice 21mg patch on themselves.

The patch will take away the craving for a cigarette.

People have been doing this for a long time now.

The patch does nothing to minimize the desire for a cigarette and is nothing more than a Johnson & Johnson Inc (I know, it sounds like to anti-smokers having a miniature sword fight in the boys room) SCAM. People have known this for a long time now.

That's funny that you think you have a "right" to poison people.
Freedom Fighter wrote:
You and anyone else does NOT have to come in and smell the smoke.
Do you claim the same "right" of black people to not come in if you want to open an White's only restaurant?
Freedom Fighter wrote:
Thats FREEDOM for the smokers. You think because you do not like smoking you are the ONLY one with RIGHTS....
Poisoning your fellow citizens is not a right. Sorry.

You are NOT talking about Freedoms you are talking dictatorship, its your way or no way.... They tried that with alcohol, didn't work did it???
You are confusing facts with your DRAMA QUEEN hysteria. Smoking is NOT illegal. Consumption of alcohol IS BANNED in many public places. It works fine. Take a few deep breaths, let your hissy fit pass, and act like an adult.

I gamble in Canada and live in MI. I also go to Toledo ALL SMOKE FREE!!! Less than 8% of the population smokes. I quit because it is lethal and it stinks. They should outlaw it completely. PA is doing better because the state is doing better. MI was severely depressed for 11 years and yet the casinos boom- smoking till you drop. Canada smoke free has just as much business. The BS about gambling and smoking is just that BULL SHITE. If you want to smoke than kill yourself at home. I won't go into a smoking casino.

And neither will my wife and I. Smoking in any business in 2013 is just WRONG. Maryland is just opening there fourth 100% smoke free Casino this week. "Maryland Live" opened a year ago and is the largest Casino with over 4,500 slots, and over 120 table games. Weekends you can't even get close to the tables and the slots are packed. Smokers just step outside smoke and step back in. It works great and benefits everyone. It's Patrons and Employees are protected against the hazards of second hand smoke and its not effecting business one bit. AC has gone to hell for one by allowing smoking and I'm laughing all the way to Maryland Live. We told AC this would happen but none of the AC bigwigs or the AC City Council would listen. People with serious money to spend on gambling don't want to be around second hand smoke anymore. Good Employees don't want to inhale second hand smoke for 40 hours a week. That's why Maryland Casinos have many of the AC dealers today.

Would the last person out of AC please turn the lights out. Thank You!!!

Casinos might be the ONLY place left where smokers can smoke. They might come there just to smoke in public.

You are totally wrong. I did it myself!

It took a couple of tries, but when I got the hang of it, it worked.

Just read Revel ok'd smoking. Sooo disapointed. Casinos are one of the ONLY places people can smoke anymore.

I think alot of them come there just to smoke.

The Casino thing was beautiful, but its pretty much over, let's all face it together Winners.

The Losers can stay there, smoke and deposit money.

Winners Remember: One door closes and a better one opens.

OK, the Casino thing is not really over, just morphed into a different kind of thing.
