(Seattle, WA) As more states enact smoking bans, some business owners are taking legal steps to preserve their smoking sections. They are handing over their property to Native Americans.

"I'm a smoker," said one local club owner who tends bar. "And when they passed the law to ban smoking in 2005 I just about cried."

"But then it occurred to me that the casinos are exempt from the law because they're considered part of the Indian Reservations," he said.

A few phone calls later and the club was under new management.

"Now I can smoke freely in my own bar," said the club owner. "Even if it's technically not in my name and I get harassed by the [Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms]."
