    Around here (Ontario, Canada), advertising for lotteries and other forms of gambling includes warnings and notices about the dangers of addiction, as well as information about support organizations. I haven't paid close attention to know if it's universal and obligatory, but I suspect that it is. Legislation is difficult, because unlike products such as tobacco, alcohol, and other drugs, gambling can be done with nothing more than a device and a network connection -- it's hard to enforce.

    I wasn't aware the British call Canada "Zedland" but I'm willing to be corrected on that.
