LAS VEGAS (Associated Press) — The Nevada Gaming Commission tweaked its regulations for dealing with intoxicated gamblers.

KVVU-TV reports the commission last week voted to clarify the rules and explain that casinos are not allowed to let "visible impaired" people gamble. That includes customers who are under the influence of alcohol, marijuana or other substances.

Commission Chairman Tony Alamo says the legislation is not new. He says it just makes the rules more clear.

The change comes about a year after Nevada legalized recreational marijuana. Alamo says that did not have an impact on the vote. He says it was a response to changing times.
