    This caught my attention. I do not know the site the man was running but that's not what caught my attention. Why is it that you can get high in CO but gambling online is such a crime? (That's a rhetorical question. They voted smoking pot in and so it's law, etc) A reply on the news article states that you can smoke pot with no rules in place as far as driving and in the workplace. I'm shaking my head. :no: BOULDER, Colo. (Associated Press) -- A 62-year-old Boulder County man accused of running an online gambling website for at least three years has been arrested.The Daily Camera reports ( <a href="http://bit.ly/1m0dvb0" >http://bit.ly/1m0dvb0</a> ) Larry Kyle Richardson was arrested Friday after a grand jury indicted him on one charge of violating the Colorado Organized Crime Control Act. He is suspected of running an online gambling website from Jan. 1, 2010, through Jan. 8, 2013, in, or triable in, Boulder County. District Attorney Stan Garnett says that while he can't talk about the case, for it to be triable in Boulder County it must have some connection to the district.The indictment says the Colorado Bureau of Investigation found checks from suspected gamblers to Richardson in amounts ranging from $50 to $11,000. The checks collected by the CBI total almost $300,000.<a href="http://www.gambling911.com/gambling-news/colorado-man-indicted-running-online-gambling-site-011214.html" >source</a>

    We all know that every country has its own laws about online gambling. I strongly suggest that every operator and player should investigate the laws in their own country before investing. Make sure that you are operating in a jurisdiction that has passed domestic legislation dealing with internet gambling rules and offers consumer protection.
