Crackdown on illegal gambling starts in Biloxi

Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood, chairman of the NAAG, said illegal gambling is something his department is studying, Internet cafes aren’t the issue in Mississippi that they are in other states, he said, but he is meeting with the AGA about establishing a NAAG Committee on Illegal Gambling to share resources.

The NAAG conference also is looking at intellectual property, cyber security, 3-D printing and the problems for law enforcement.

“I think it will have as great an impact on us as the Internet,” he said of 3-D printing that can or will one day create drugs, body organs and counterfeit products, and he said the attorneys general are looking at “the mischief it’s going to bring.”
