A big part of the problem here are the "bible thumpers" trying to force their views and narrow mindedness on other people. I like to go to the casino in Cherokee and play video poker machines. I am a responsible adult and haven't "lost the farm" yet with my little bit of playing the machines. One of the excuses to outlaw them is that peoples' lives have been ruined because of gambling. Yes, some fools don't know when to quit. I take in X amount of money and when it's gone, so am I. You have to use common sense and realize the reason casinos and sweepstakes cafes, lotteries, etc are in business and making lots of money is because it is set up so they aren't losing. Drugs and drinking and the consequences of those vices have ruined many lives also what with the spending to get your fix, then the legal fees if you get caught. Law enforcement would be better served to keep people away from those bad habits.
