You say that like it's a good thing.

I'm moving to Laughlin at the end of the week. Could have lived in Bullhead City (which is where my job will be), but I liked the, I guess, cachet of a "Nevada" address over "Arizona." I like Nevada's attitude of "You can do whatever you want, as long as you don't bother the customers."

And I don't know if you've noticed, but "the culture of gambling" is all over the nation now. Powerball jackpots, Mississippi Gulf Coast casinos (and Deadwood casinos here in South Dakota) NCAA tournament pools, World Series of Poker on ESPN (and its satellite tournaments in your hometown), etc.

Nevada has some of what the rest of the country does not offer. Take that away and we might as well be Salt Lake City in the desert.

Just to clarify, OR didn't legalize marijuana; that was WA and CO. I live in WA and we have plenty of Native American casinos up here, as do many other states.

Yes, you legalized marijuana but you make a law that anyone playing online poker is a Class C Felony?

The best part about States having thier own laws is you can move to what suits you without having to leave the Country.

I lived in Washington State for almost 6 years total while in the Navy. Outside of the BEAUTIFUL SUMMERS I don't care to ever go back (except maybe for a M's game). Just my opinion.

I find your handle uniquely appropriate, since those are exactly the products prostitution works with

Welcome to the Tri-State. I think you will find Metro PD doesn't agree with that slogan.

And since Nevada is trying to stick a tax on Arizonans who work in Laughlin, don't forget to pay your Arizona entrance fee when you come over here to work or buy groceries.
