If you want to bet on sports legally in this country, you have to be in Nevada. But there’s a chance Nevada could lose that exclusivity. The U.S. Supreme Court will take up a case related to sports betting this fall. The case comes from New Jersey, where voters said they wanted sports betting, but the courts said no. Now if the Supreme Court says the lower court can’t interfere with the state’s decision, it might open the doors for other states to legalize sports betting. And in an odd twist, the court’s decision could even affect federal law related to legal marijuana.
