Effects Gambling Legalized

by Jerry "Jet" Whittaker
July 24, 2006

What is legalized gambling?


Legalized gambling can be defined as the gambling, which has the backing of the laws of that specific area in which the gambling activities are carried on. There are some states in the United States of America, where the gambling is not legal. In these states, gambling is an offence and any person found involved in any of the gambling activity can be prosecuted. The gambling activities in these states cannot be called as legalized gambling. If the gambling is legalized in any state, the gamblers can gamble in that play in that state.


Problems in legalizing the gambling


There are a lot of problems in legalizing the gambling in any state. The first problem in legalizing the gambling is the compulsive gambling. Compulsive gambling is a mental disorder in which the gambler cannot quit gambling even if he tries to do so. According to experts legalized gambling can increase the chances of this disorder in a person. Another point against the legalized gambling is that according to a recent study, there is a direct correlation between the gambling and the crime rates in the state. The suicide rate is also higher in the states where the gambling is legalized.


Advantages in legalizing the gambling


One of the most important advantages in legalizing the gambling is that the gambling can provide a lot of revenues to the state. It is seen that the gambling has provided huge revenues to the states in which the gambling is allowed. It is the main source of revenue in the state of California. The second advantage is that it is a good way to spend your leisure time. This is the reason a lot of people are pressurizing the state to legalize the gambling.




It is better for any state to legalize the gambling because, even if it is not legal the people can gamble on the internet. The revenues provided by the state can be used for the other productive works for the public interests. Considering all these reasons in favour of gambling, most of the states in the United States of America have legalized the gambling.
