The 25th state which banned smoking in restaurants, bars and casinos is South Dakota. Casinos’ owners said that banning smoking in casinos will cost the state millions.
Mike Rounds, the Dakota Governor, suggested that because of the new legislation the state could lose as much as $15 million to $20 million.
Eighty percent of South Dakotans are nonsmokers, the governor said, and many would prefer not to inhale secondhand smoke in the bars, restaurants and casinos that’s why they welcome smoking prohibition.
Smokers said that smoking cigs4us.biz/marlboro-cigarette must not be prohibited only because it is very hard to quit. Rounds’ decision to sign the ban was not well-received at Gunner’s Lounge.
“We have very few problems, and we don’t need any more rules enforced on us,” said Nancy Aragon, who manages Gunner’s and two other Sturgis bars, the Oasis and the Fireside.
The smoking ban will go into effect July 1st, and Rounds acknowledged opponents could put it off until late 2010.
Mr. Rounds added: “South Dakota is one of the easiest states in the nation to refer a law”. Even American Heart Association polling over five years shows that 65 percent of South Dakotans support a smoking ban.
In many states smoking ban doesn’t affect all bars or casinos, in many bars smokers go outside to smoke and then come back. Bar owners think also that smoking prohibition will not affect their income.
