It's not about casinos or the smokers - ban is about health

There are 168 comments on the The Gazette story from Dec 30, 2007, titled It's not about casinos or the smokers - ban is about health. In it, The Gazette reports that:

“We'll remove all the ashtrays, and no smoking will be allowed.”

Beginning New Year's Day, a smoking ban will curtail Colorado casino profits somewhat as smoking gamblers are forced to take a break from the action when they light up. via The Gazette

You are hilarious.o you mean to be? YOU expect US to keep up the profits of a business YOU stole from the owner. I am laughing so hard I cannot stand it. I have news for you, a hole, if smoking is banned nationally, they will all fail. We will not participate in your games. F You
You are entitled to your opinion and your toilet mouth! Oh yeah, the world will collapse if the smoking ban was nation wide....LOL! Businesses would all be on level ground and the issue would surely disappear if the ban were nationwide. Since smoking bans are in force....MANY of my smoking friends are much more considerate smokers!
I feel for the business owners competing with neighboring cities who are not under a ban BUT I love the fact that many smokers have become much more aware of their fellow non smokers. Many times while sitting at a casino etc. a smoker would sit next to me and blow their smoke directly into my face.....then they sit there holding the stink stick with the smoke trail crossing right across my face.....if that isn't a ignorant violation of personal space I don't know what is. Smokers don't have to deal with any unwelcome violations of their personal space! Like I said earlier....non smokers should develope a smelly smoke filled divice that when a smoker sits beside us violating our space....we can blow some smoky stink back at them and see how they like it.....I bet they would think differently about non somkers! It is simply RESPECT of personal space and health! By the way....glad I gave you a reason to laugh....must be pretty BORED staying home and smoking!

Umm, do you have news where you are... NO business is on level ground any longer.. The U.S. is going under and you helped... You must be so proud. Besides, why would anyone show you any respect, you obviously do not deserve it.

It is NOT me that is disrespectful....reread! I was told not to reenter secular society which was the only reason I wrote I am happy being where they are not.....wherever that may be! Also, REREAD....I wrote IF the smoking ban was nationwide businesses would be on level playing ground where smoking is concerned! DUH ! I am a Proud American....I am not a pesimist....the United States of American will flourish as it always has!
