The Nevada Gaming Commission has tweaked its regulations for dealing with gamblers who may be high on marijuana.

Local news reports said the commission has voted to clarify the rules and explain to casinos that they are not allowed to let visibly impaired people gamble – this includes customers who are under the influence of alcohol, marijuana or other substances.

Commission chairman Tony Alamo says the legislation is not new and the commission just wanted to “make the rules more clear”.

The change comes after Nevada legalised recreational marijuana over a year ago. Alamo says that did not have an impact on the vote, but that it was “a response to changing times”.
