Inquirer editorial: A risk casinos can do without

Posted on

Read an October 4, 2013 editorial from from the Philadelphia Inquirer in support of 100% smokefree casinos for New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The author cites a study by the University of California, San Francisco which found ambulance calls dropped by 19% for the two-dozen Colorado casinos after they went smokefree.

Atlantic City Casinos is still exempt from the 2006 New Jersey Smoke Free Air Act. Read more about New Jersey gaming on our Atlantic City webpage.
