CARSON CITY, Nevada - The Nevada State Senate acting on a request of the vast majority of the Las Vegas Gambling casinos has just voted on a bill regarding the chewing of chewing gum.
State Senator Hula Hanna Dimpsydew, 46, [D-Reno] stated that the request to ban chewing gum in the entire state passed by a vote of 19-2.
The manager of The Carnival Carnival Casino, Marco "Chip" Chipovich, 61, remarked that they asked for the ban because the habitual habit of gum chewing had gotten out of hand.
Chipovich noted that many casino customers stated that the noise from the gum chewing and gum popping was distracting them at the slot machines, the roulette wheels, and even while they were in the bathrooms.
The new ban will go into effect immediately. Senator Dimpsydew, who is a non-gambler, expressed the fact that anyone caught chewing gum anywhere in the state after midnight Friday, June 21, will be issued a $700 fine.
A second violation will result in a fine of $4,200, and should someone violate the ban a third time they will be arrested and placed in prison for a period of 10 days and will be required to pay a fine of $15,000 before they will be released.
