....you could theoretically walk into a "coffee shop"...

I've never smoked but did go with a friend into a "coffee shop" and they did serve me a coffee (while they smoked). It was rather like walking into a cafe, the was a side hatch to order smokes and somewhere to order coffee.

Let them have them in casinos--it is legal to use, so why put too many restrictions on it. No, I don't really want it smoked freely in the casino area; I don't like cigarette and cigar smoke either, but I see no reason not to have a space where the smell does not escape the room anywhere they want to do it.

It isn't like they are really against public intoxication...unless the people are too intoxicated to allow them to gamble. That happens, of course, but there is way more completely inebriated gambling than they would like to talk about.

..think of all the street people you're denying a contact high with this rule. The world could stand to mellow out. The smoke goes wasted this way...kidding, but only sort of.

I used to walk past a French Bakery several hours before it opened and it was wonderful to pass by their exhaust fan as the French chef was setting to work.

You may bemoan the passerby's loss but if anyone is too poor to enter and partake of their vices, then Vegas does not want them congregating as if were an overpass or something.

I'm surprised at the current votes in the poll....WoV members 6-2 against smoking lounges? Huh.

Shrug
I smoke and I have no interest in a lounge
I catch a buzz and go play golf
I catch a buzz and go play poker
I catch a buzz and go kayaking
I catch a buzz and go for a bike ride
I catch a buzz and go to a restaurant to satisfy the munchies :-)

I have no interest in catching a buzz and hanging out at some boring lounge

I very rarely smoke but when I do I just want to sit still and just kind of zone out, so if I were more into it I would definitely consider visiting a dedicated lounge.

Gamble for a while, go to a lounge, get a little high and relax for an hour or two, then back to the tables... Sounds kind of nice, actually.

Sure I agree with you when I'm at home. But when you're a visitor in Vegas, you have no place to legally smoke the weed you legally buy. Can't smoke in the casinos, or in your hotel room, or in public. So they serve a very needed role in a touristy area.

Personally weed has kind of an opposite effect on me than it does on most people - I actually get a little fidgety and restless. I like to stand up and pace around. Weed will actually keep me awake, so I have to be careful not to smoke it too close to bedtime.

So to me, it would go really well with gambling. Well, not AP, but craps or BS blackjack.

State of the art video and sound, video games , comfy couches, whatever games people want to play, internet access and a wide assortment of bongs, and other smoking utensils. Good munchies.
Sounds dreadful.

Hard to imagine anything other than a nap cafe. Who wants to smoke and then just... lounge?

Call it "40 Quarters and a Nickle". Add some Golden Tee, little TMNT, Street Fighter II... now that's a place'll take your rent money
