Description

This investigation showed 10- and 12-year-old children buying lottery tickets from vending machines in full view of employees at convenience stores, grocery stores and delis. The reporter confronted store managers and showed video evidence to the Maryland Lottery Commissioner, who stated that the videos could lead to investigations and fines. The state had never previously fined any stores for such violations.
