You may not be aware of this, but I have seen folks go into these cafes and trade prescription pills and anything else (booze, etc.) they can with these folks who run the cafes in exchange for gambling money.. maybe you didn't know that, but it's true. I agree with you no real difference between this activity and the lottery EXCEPT, in this case, regulation is a GOOD thing.
I don't see anyone going into a business trying to buy a lottery ticket with pills, do you?? I know first hand how this affects families; trust me, it's horrible. I don't want to give the state any more of my money than I have to either, but for crying out loud, but some of these "owners" of the cafes in question are CRIMINALS, or at LEAST engaging in criminal behavior. Just something you might want to consider.
