Internet gambling is popular among several age groups, however, teenagers have shown a special interest in the sites. “Statistics prove that teen-age Internet gambling is the fastest growing addiction of the day, akin to drug and alcohol abuse in the 1930s,” said David Robertson, former chairman of the National Coalition Against Legalized Gambling, on the Web site www.cnn.com. “It’s pernicious, it’s evil, it’s certainly one that feeds on those who are the weakest members of society — and that’s the young and the poor.”
