Regulate Online Gambling Or Keep It Illegal?

from the depends-on-which-headline-you-believe dept

The issue of online gambling comes up in the US quite a bit – as it’s mostly illegal right now. Now, though, some politicians are saying that it would be better to regulate some form of online gambling, since an outright ban is unlikely to work. Others, though, feel that regulation will never work, and they need to push for more stringent anti-gambling laws. I tend to agree with the first camp. Completely banning online gambling only makes it so that those who want to gamble go to less trustworthy sites, where they’re more likely to be scammed.
