In Nevada, home to the Las Vegas strip and other towns with far more gambling attractions than Colorado, business has suffered. Total revenues for Nevada's casinos fell almost 5 percent in January to $1.064 billion, according to the state's gaming division.

New Jersey and Illinois also reported significant declines in the same month compared with a year ago, according to data collected by the American Gaming Association.

Just keep telling yourself "....smoking bans are good for business.....".

That's what Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the non-profits in their employ, and Nicoderm manufacturer Johnson & Johnson Company keep repeating.
