Gambling is legal in several places in Minnesota at the age of 18. Many adolescents spend time every week gambling as a part of their weekly routine. There are many states where gambling is illegal until people are 21. Does the fact that gambling is legal at 18 cause addiction later in life? Are the consequences of the lower age benefit or hurt Minnesotans?
