Gambling Houses breed

Approximately 1% of the U.S. adults (3 million) meet criteria for pathological gambling. (National Council on Problem Gambling)

Another 2-3% have less significant, but still serious problems with their gambling and are known as problem gamblers. (National Council on Problem Gambling)

Pathological and Problem Gamblers are much more likely than others to have problems with drinking, drugs and smoking, and to suffer from depression. (National Council on Problem Gambling)

There is also a strong link between suicide and pathological gambling. (National Council on Problem Gambling)

Enough said----gambling "houses" not only bring shady characters but make others depressed and suicidal!!

There is a HUGE difference between one that picks up a lottery ticket at a store than a gambling "house" where people spend HOURS loosing their paychecks or unemployment checks that should be feeding their families.
