N.C. high court upholds ban on video sweepstakes

Great job NC. Shutting down over 1500 businesses and causing 1000's of people to now be unemployed in an already bad state economy, all because the state wishes to control our personal lives, protect the greedy indian casino and try to increase lottery sales. I doubt none of the decision makers have actually step foot inside a sweepstakes location to really see what it is all about. This is the perfect example of why NC is as backwards as it is and why big business avoids this state like the plague.
