Response to John Stossel's article "State stacks deck against gamblers." Stossel is right. People like to gamble, so give them what they want and tax it. America needs to grow up and let people govern their own lives. Prohibition of anything that millions of people want never works; it only drives it underground and creates a black market that makes criminals rich.
