State legislators in Colorado have agreed on Friday on the date of new casino smoking ban in the state.

Colorado casino non-smokingA compromise was reached for the ban to take effect on January 1st 2008 - the House pledged for July 2007 and an amendment to a House Bill 1269 gave a time limit till July 2008. Both chambers of the State Congress must agree on this date, but there seems to be enough support for this to happen without any problems.

An indoor smoke ban is already passed to take effect in July of this year, but casinos and cigar bars were exempt. A bill is already on its way to the state's senate to lift the exception for the cigar bars. The smoke ban already which already passed also forbids smoking in bars and restaurants - something smokers should consider before planning an Aspen vacation.

Experts agree that the casinos in Black Hawk, Cripple Creek and Central City will be smoke-free next year. American Cancer Society in Colorado have also stated that they are looking for a complete smoke ban in Colorado in the near future.
