173242 There's an article on this site entitled, "Why Are Brothels Illegal?". Well, when was the last time you heard of a petition drive to get an issue on the ballot which, if passed, would legalize brothels? Could it be that brothels are illegal because nobody has tried to legalize them?
Perhaps it's the same with gambling.

At one point both gambling and prostitution were perfectly legal, then the government turned both into "crimes" with the stroke of a pen. So no, it can't be. Regardless what the mob wants is irrelevant to what should actually be tolerated, in some countries homosexuality is illegal and gays are executed, that's democracy in action. Each population has their minorities they love persecuting, democracy is always the excuse.
