Gambling Arrests

I read the craziest thing in the Baltimore Sun over the weekend.  One hundred and twenty people have willingly signed on to be arrested for trespassing if they enter a Maryland casino.  These are individuals with a gambling addiction who see this as the only way to keep from entering a casino.  Since implementation, seven of those who agreed to be arrested have been arrested for trespassing at a casino.  The State of Maryland needs to be of greater assistance to these folks as there is only one place that they can register for the gambling exclusion program that isn't a casino.  Really?
