Philadelphia Inquirer against prohibition

This article posted in the Philadelphia Inquirer on 25 May 2006 questions the attempt by Christian members of Congress to ban internet gambling. The author, Frank Catania, highlights the contradiction in exempting internet horse racing gambling from the ban and sees this as pandering to special interest groups. He reasons that strict regulation would be of greater assistance to underage or problem gamblers than an outright ban. He concludes that "History has taught us that prohibition does not work".
