Smoking at Twin River Is Shameful

It really bothers me that Twin River is the only public place in the state that you can smoke indoors. Every restaurant and bar has to abide by the law but they don't. The law was modified to allow smoking there. Why? Because of he tax revenue? Would they loose money if it was banned? It didn't effect restaurants and bars. People still go out and eat and drink. What about the health of the people who go there that don't smoke? The employees that are subjected to hours of the smoke and stench that will slowly kill them? I know they have smoke eaters inside. But let me tell you they don't work. I have asked state representatives to look into it. Guess what response I got.... No one is willing to stand up to this legislature and be the voice of change. Shame on you RI for willingly allowing something to happen that is proven to kill people all for the mighty dollar! What do others think?

There are bars in ri that members are allowed to smoke in. I as a smoker do enjoy sitting gambling having a drink and a cigarette to, but I must admit sometimes the smoke is overwhelming in there. Maybe they need to look into better ventilation system or something. Everyday law makers are trying to take more and more of our rights every day ...

They have non smoking areas and no you dont have to walk through smoke. Its a choice you make if you want to gamble, watch a show, etc. If it bothers people dont go no one is forcing you to go to Twin River.

Brina you are correct, go in from the south entrance or valet entrance and you dont need to go through the smoke. For anyone to think they are hurting them selves for allowing smoking is crazy have you tried to go there on just about any night the place is packed

You hit a sour note with me on this one!! Only in Ri can something like this happen. It is such dirty dirty politics. Hey lets make a law for everyone except us no one will fight the state. The Restaurants and bars should all ban together and sue the state with a high profile lawyer fot lost revenews . I tried going to Twin River and can't stand that smoke infested trap, non smoking area is a joke! Lets see the main entertainment is in the downstairs smoking area....hmm smoke rises! Sue the state! ANY employee that gets cancer that is employed there should lawyer up!

Friends always ask me to go there. and the answer will always be no! Soon enough those that don't smoke can take the short drive to ma and enjoy a new non smoking casino.
