Casino Boats

NPR's Cheryl Devall reports that Florida docks more casino boats that any other state in the U.S. Most of the games that are offered on the boats are not legal on land. Which is why the boats travel three miles out into international waters so they can offer all casino games. Florida voters rejected the idea of a land-based casino three times.
