New Jersey Smoke-Free Air Act
The Legislature finds and declares that: tobacco is the leading cause of
preventable disease and
death in the State and the nation, and tobacco smoke constitutes a substantial
health hazard to
the nonsmoking majority of the public. The separation of smoking and nonsmoking
areas in indoor
public places and workplaces does not eliminate the hazard to nonsmokers
if these areas share a
common ventilation system; and, therefore, subject to certain specified
exceptions, it is clearly
in the public interest to prohibit smoking in all enclosed indoor places
of public access and workplaces.
Smoking is prohibited in an indoor public place or workplace, except as
otherwise provided in this act.
Smoking is forbidden in any area of any building of, or on the grounds
of, any public or nonpublic
elementary or secondary school, regardless of whether the area is an indoor
public place or is
outdoors. The person having control of a hotel, motel or other lodging
establishment may permit
smoking in up to 20% of its guest rooms.

Smoking Ban in Atlantic City
In 1978, the New Jersey legislature approved casino gambling in Atlantic
City. At that time, Las Vegas
was the only mega-casino resort. By 1978, Atlantic City was on the decline.
It was no longer the seaside
resort that it once was. With the institution of casino gambling, Atlantic
City has come back as a resort
city. Many lie along the Atlantic City Boardwalk, the longest boardwalk
throughout the Jersey Shore.
Atlantic City is considering delaying the start of a total smoking ban
at its 11 casinos due to economic
weakness and plunging revenue.The ban, which was approved in April after
a year-and-a-half battle
between casino workers and gambling hall operators, is set to take effect
Oct. 15, 2008.
