  1. Maybe we need Dram Shop laws here in Nevada. Our current policy is to get 'em as drunk as possible. As long as they are spending money of course!

  2. No "maybe" about it. Also, "Happy Hours" & "All-You-Can-Drink" for one set price should be banned. Exactly what purpose do they serve other than getting patrons "sloshed?"

  3. NewVegasResident: I've worked in the casino industry 15+ years. We give 'em booze till they black out and fall in the floor as long as the right money is being spent. It's accepted as fact that alcohol consumption affects our decision making skills. So, that being said, when does the entity providing the alcohol take some responsibility?
