Gambling in Minnesota

Leah Mair

While many think that allowing casinos in Minnesota would lead to an increase in revenue, research shows that the social and economic impacts of legalized casinos would harm Minnesotans far more than it would help them.

Court Case

A court case important to this topic is California vs. Cabazon Band of Mission Indians. This court case established that if gambling is a criminal offense in a state, no one, not even Indian reservations, can allow gambling.

In conclusion...

While casinos may have good short-term effects, research shows that, in the long run, casinos only harm people, whether they gamble or not.
