Gaming regulators are used to tweaking rules to keep up with changes in the industry. Last week the Nevada Gaming Commission took a step toward keeping up with societal change.
Under an amendment unanimously approved by the five-member commission, casinos will be subject to the same disciplinary standards for letting people gamble while impaired by drugs as they are for letting them play while intoxicated by alcohol.
The new rules may result in additional workforce training for floor staff to be aware of potentially impaired patrons.
