Cancer Society Response to Smoking Ban Lawsuit

American Cancer Society released their response to the smoking ban lawsuit.

Government Relations Director for Nevada Buffy Martin Tarbox said, "While, we are not surprised by this desperate act to attempt to skirt the new law, we hoped the opponents of the Nevada Clean Indoor Air law would abide by the will of the people who voted to enact smoke free laws in Nevada.

"However, we are confident this new lawsuit will lose in Clark County District Court, just as our opponents previous lawsuits have failed in two other Nevada courts.

"This new lawsuit is completely without merit.

Nevadans are tired of second hand smoke poisoning our air, and spoke loud and clear by passing the Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act with a majority vote. It's truly disappointing that some business owners think they are above the law."
