Nothing like the smell of skunk in the hallways. We need skunk free hotels!

Legal marijuana is on the ballot in Arizona this election and it appears that it will pass easily. Current polling has it at about 60% in favor.
If the formerly conservative state passes it, I think you will see a domino effect where another dozen or more states get on the bandwagon.

Cuomo has been an opponent but latest news is he is now in favor. Legislation that was expected to pass got sidetracked by COVID. Likely to be back in 2021.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

My guess is we are in a different time right now and Park MGM will fare no worse with or without smoking.

The time is long past to stop the practice of people having to breath second hand smoke indoors. Itís a health concern and we outlawed it in movie theaters, restaurants and numerous other places because itís a health risk we no longer tolerate.

A bold move for sure, they have essentially thrown down on the smoking casinos. In the final analysis it is, as it should be, free choice. God bless America and death to all her enemies.

Do they? Even if that is true, I suspect a lot of non-gambling non-smoking vegas visitors will welcome the change.
We will know in a year, maybe less.

I've noticed quite a few people who don't normally smoke... when they come to Vegas they add some light smoking in with the rest.

Under normal circumstances I would make this bet in a heartbeat, however, with the covid-19 I could see that extending how long they will stay smoke-free.

Iím sometimes in that camp. It enhances the vice aspect of Vegas.

In fact, when I smell cigarette smoke, it triggers a desire in my brain to visit a casino.

That said, I would prefer that all my gambling were done in a smoke-free environment.

Perhaps only dive casinos with a craps table should allow smoking ófor the sake of history and atmosphere.

Smoking prevents you from getting covid-19. I suggest no less than 10 packs a day.

Appreciate the effort! I think this is the first non-smoking casino resort in Las Vegas
