The topic is this: Do you ever gamble? If so, what games? How often, how much, and with whom? Regardless of whether or not you do, what is your opinion on it? Should it be legal? socially acceptable? Discuss.
As for myself, I do place monetary bets with friends and family (nothing more than I'm willing to lose, though) on things like the Stanley Cup playoffs. Also, I regularly play Texas Hold'em with some friends for small money ($5-20 per person). Hell, I've even put money on a game of Monopoly before. It is a lot of fun, but it isn't something I'd say I'm addicted to or anything.
I think it does have potential, generally speaking, to become a problem in people's lives if they aren't careful, but I do think that [American] gambling laws as a whole should be relaxed.
How about you?
