Hi Folks across the ocean..
I understand, that from an American point of view this kind of restrictionIt looks strange from the right side of the ocean too, at least to me.
What I don't get is why they think it's ok to limit our freedom of information. If they want to make sure we don't gamble in undesired ways, they should cut off the stuff that matters: the money. There is much more precedent for that.
Imagine, if kids in the US would be able to order Cannabis from Online-shopsActually, buying this stuff for personal use isn't really "legal" but there is a policy of not doing anything against it, which obviously boils down to the same thing. Dealing in larger quantities and sending it across the border is a different matter, though. (One of the arguments in favor of this policy is that in countries like France or the US even more people smoke cannabis. I find it hard to believe that this would be physically possible, it seems like half the population uses the stuff over here.)
