Luring smokers back to the casinos

Where there's smoke, there's money -- at least to the Atlantic City casinos.

The City Council in the New Jersey resort city has voted to snuff-out the temporary smoking ban that took effect less than two weeks ago.

Atlantic City officials say they don't want to drive away any smoking gamblers during tough times.

Mayor Scott Evans says the nation's financial crisis justifies putting off the smoking ban.
