A cigar question pet peeve and question

ZAPZAP Posts: 186 ✭✭
Been meaning to post this for awhile...I have not been to any casinos outside of Minnesota and am curious if this is par  for the course at all casinos.

Minnesota is a smoke free state.  No smoking in bars, etc.  But the Indian casinos for some reason are allowed to have smoking inside.  There they allow cigarette smoking but not cigar smoking.  Bothers the piss out of me.  I sit there in a plume of horrid cigarette smoke but when I try to light up a cigar they tell me I can't.  They've even got signs now saying no cigar smoking allowed.

Now I don't go to the casino but once or twice a year to play a little blackjack but if they allowed Cigar smoking inside I would definitely  get there more often in the winter just simply to have a cigar in a warm area.

Is this standard operating procedure for all casinos (cigarettes OK, but no cigars?)..

    Some of the Casinos in Wisconsin let you smoke cigars or I have'nt been caught and some don't, not sure why, but I make sure I go to the ones that do allow it!!

    It is because Minnesota is dumb Zap. They believe that any tobacco smoke will kill you. Cigars have more smoke = kill you faster. Too bad they don't think about it and realize cigars don't have 500 additives that burn into harmful chemicals. So you can inhale the cigarette smoke all day, but not the milder less toxic cigar smoke.

    My eldest daughter had a sleepover at a friends place this weekend. When I dropped her off the grandmother was there and the place seemed really nice. When I picked her up the parents were there, smoking cigarettes like they were free. Made EVERYTHING my daughter brought home smell horrible. I cannot even stand it. We washed the sleeping bag, backpack, everything she had with her, pillow included. How can you honestly live in a place like that? So sad they torture their child by forcing her to inhale it. When she has a friend over, wouldn't you smoke outside (it was more than warm enough)? Inconsiderate people suck.

    It's starting to catch on a few local casinos here in California. In restaurant patios where smoking is allowed, cigar smoking is banned.

    In AZ and NV, you can smoke cigars in the casinos and on patios of eating establishments. One of the newer casinos actually has a "cigar lounge" in it. On my travels to Detroit, the casino I go to allows cigars as well.

    In Wa, cigars are allowed and most of the bigger casinos will have cigar stores, cigar lounges or both

    AC has weird rules, but there are plenty of places you can enjoy a cigar.

    The reality is probably simply this: they sell cigarettes by the ton and with no problems. Cigars don't sell as often and have to be kept with care to be enjoyed. Plus, a lot more people complain about cigar smoke than cigarette smoke for some unfathomable reason.

    At the casinos across the border in Iowa you are allowed to have cigars.

    I hate picking my daughter up at one of her friends house, you can smell the cigarettes before you even get to the door. I hate to say it but I'm glad that's one friendship of hers that has sort of dissolved.

    In Ga. most places have outside smoking, but some bars and late night joints still have indoor smoking. A lot of those places PREFER that you don't smoke cigars... but they don't post it... and since I'm usually bigger than them and I PREFER to smoke cigars... I smoke them anyways. lol

    Las Vegas casinos are for most part, extremely smoker-friendly. There are a few that have signs above selected table games that say "NO SMOKING"...like that will keep the smoke from the next table away from them.
    All restaurants in casinos are non-smoking now. That doesn't bother me, I'm just glad I can fire up a cigar while playing craps or Blackjack.

    Technically casinos on reservation land DO NOT have to follow state a fedral laws outside of reporting certian crimes like murder, rape any crime involving a non-reservation resident so they can pretty much allow anything they want including fireworks. Just don't think you'll find anything illegal on the reservations because you won't find it...Like cuban cigars.
