What's messed up about it is that gambling isn't illegal according to US law. Though some states ban it such as Washington state does. It's just the transfer of funds that's an issue.
They should make prostitution legal, just make the transferring of fluids the issue.......
But, yea, it is messed up about the legalities surrounding online poker.
