Mass. commission to examine problem gambling
BOSTON (AP) — The Massachusetts Gaming Commission will be discussing issues related to problem gambling.
Commission members are scheduled to hear presentations from experts on problem gambling during a public forum Monday at North Shore Community College in Lynn.
The forum aims to raise awareness of problem gambling and treatment resources available throughout the state. It will feature personal stories from individuals who've struggled with gambling addictions and provide insight for treatment and research.
Information from the forum will help the commission implement a law signed by Gov. Deval Patrick in November that allows for the licensing of three casinos and one slots parlor in the state.
