Because What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Your Lungs...

Americans for Nonsmokers' Rights has developed some new tools for its Smokefree Casinos campaign. A 4-page backgrounder includes information about NIOSH's report on environmental tobacco smoke and casino dealers, current smokefree gaming laws, quotes from supportive poker champions, and more.

Also, ANR also has Smokefree Casino banners available for use on websites, like the one shown on the left (the other version has an image of dice on a green background). The banners are already proving useful. They were used on the Navajo Nation earlier this month, and are now headed to the National League of Cities meeting. From there, they will go to the ANR booth at the Global Gaming Expo in Vegas next month.

The National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS) approved a landmark resolution in January 2009 encouraging state lawmakers to ensure that casinos are smokefree workplaces.
