The legislature of the state of Florida approves casino gambling

Customer Question

The legislature of the state of Florida approves casino gambling in Florida, but just in three locations in southeast Florida, and with the significant limitation that the casinos will not be allowed to advertise in any Florida media. The legislature wants to protect the people living in the state from being bombarded and seduced by continuous, sleek, sexy, and seductive casino ads and consequently gambling their life-savings away. The casino industry contends that the ban on advertising is unconstitutional. The likely result of the constitutional challenge will be:
Answer

a. The state of Florida wins since it had the best interests of the people in the state "at heart" since the legislature was trying to protect people from the "vice" of gambling.

b. The casino industry wins since the advertising is clearly "political speech" and Florida does not have a "compelling government interest" in restricting the speech.

c. The casino industry wins if the advertising is truthful and not deceptive and not aimed at minors since the advertising is protected "commercial speech."

d. The casino industry wins since advertising is speech and the First Amendment to the Constitution absolutely protects all kinds of speech and expression.
