District of Columbia and states want to legalize state by state, online gambling

Most are doing it for the revenue in hard economic times. Iowa, which has a surplus, says it is considering legalizing it to protect its citizens from other, more dangerous forms of illegal online gambling. Iowa would rather you gamble in a safe, sensible, Iowan manner in Iowa. Iowa is totally like that one kid in high school’s mom who let everyone drink at her house as long as you didn’t go anywhere*.
