Colorado's Lottery is one of 43 States that have legalized gambling. Gambling and Lottery is very contradictory because in Colorado a property owner or a citizens can not condone any kind of gambling operation unless it is sanctioned by the state. I wonder how many real estate listings are aquired for the poor with the money collected from legal gambling. How is the state more qualified to operate gambling operations given the States history of political corruption.
Colorado strategic management plan can better be understood with studying its rules and regulations:
