How gambling affects one's life? Is is right to legalized gambling?
Laws depend form country to country and person to person.
Gambling is based on the human behavior of wanting more and short cuts to success. You win while gambling - you feel good.
You loose every thing gambling - you are lost.
Secret is to know your limits and decide.
Gambling can be an addictive activity, as it is "exciting" to play with risk. Some people are addicted to the adrenaline rush of risk.
Any organized gambling is automatically a losing proposition, since the organizer will have to take a cut, so the odds are automatically against the player.
Legalizing gambling is up to the government to decide. The government basically must weigh the benefits (taxes, ancillary business, organized nature makes the whole thing easier to manage), vs. the costs (human toll such as increased crime, gambling addiction, etc.)
Gambling can ruin someone's life rather easily. Whether or not it's "right" for it to be legal is a rather philosophical question that can not be answered definitively.

I believe the effects of marijuana is not what the government is afriaid of. A study shows that by removing the crop from consumption, a considerable amount of GDP would be affected in the country creating an inbalance with no way to satify filling the gap. European countries have...

I want to get people's views on this. The thread's inspired by comments I've seen from people in and outside of this forum that suggest taxes are theft. The idea goes: if the government forces people to pay taxes (under threat of imprisonment) then they are essentially stealing people's money by...
