    What do you think of the current gambling age (21) do you think it should be turned back to 18? Why?

    I think it's fine where it is. I mean, I love playing poker, but I admit that I can be fucking dumb sometimes. I think for the sake of people younger than 21 it should stay there. Then again, 18 isn't so bad either. I'm sorta in the middle on this one.

    I'm going to say keep it at 21 for several reasons. Gambling can be a very serious addiction. It's like an alcoholic except with gambling. To the point where you spend every last dime on a horse track or maybe at the poker table and you're in the hole $10,000 then you owe owe owe. Fucking up your credit at a young age which is really not cool. Second of all it's just a game it's like M rated games you can get someone to buy them for you and you can play, but you can't buy the yourself if that makes sense.

    I don't see the logic in any age requirement over 18. I can bet my life by signing up with the military, but I can't bet a few bucks on Blackjack?

    The age here (Australia) is 18, which is same as the drinking age. If we can gamble earlier, I don't see why the US and other countries can't.

    If I ever make it out to Vegas, of course I'd like to gamble, but I'm not saying that they should lower it. What's a few years to wait anyway? I'd say to keep it the same.
