Wouldnt it be Nice if Every Lottery Was Free??It Could Be: Cigarettes...

How much is the State Lottery Revenue?? Perhaps 30 BILLION?? And that´s all 40 states...How much is the Cigarette Industry Revenue? JUST IN THE USA ALONE....About the Same...

I was surfing the Internet and i read that 30 billion packs of cigarettes are SOLD EVERY YEAR...Multiply that times: $4 per pack....And is: 120 Billion dollars each year...More than the State Lottery RAKES IN NATIONALLY ACROSS THE USA...Now i dont know if those packs are the same packs that have: 12 bars of cigarettes or if is a larger one...

Would you like to go in your pijamas to the lottery retailer and withdraw: $500 or $1,500 with just showing your I.D...

And remember:

There is: Pick3, there is Pick4, there is Pick5, there is Pick6, there is Powerball and there is: SCRATCHOFFS...Each one is a different fountain...

So what if instead of having: Pick5, Pick6 & Scratchoffs,, you only had: Pick3 & Pick4...Let the Revenue from Pick5, pick6 and Scratchoffs go to Pick3, Pick4....Remember this is WITHOUT CIGARETTES and this is ONLY THE USA ALONE...What do you got? a HUGE Pick3 & Pick4 Exchange....

However Read this article i looked it up on google.com:

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_many_packs_of_cigarettes_are_sold_annually_in_the_US

that page is pointing out to this page:

http://www.davehitt.com/2005/reasonableconclusions.html

And that pages says the following:

QUOTING:

¨Only a quarter of the population smokes, so we multiply that number by four to get the annual consumption of a single smoker. It comes out to 8,368, which breaks down to 418 packs, which in turn breaks down to 1.15 packs a day. That seems a little low, but it's not unreasonable, so we'll go with it. (One advantage of this approach is that we're don't need precise numbers. Reasonable approximations are enough to draw general conclusions, especially if our calculations err on the side of caution.)

Multiplying 418 packs times 70,000,000 smokers (a little less than a quarter of the US population, again erring on the side of caution) gives us 29,288,000,000 packs of cigarettes sold every year. Multiply that by $40 a pack, and we come up with a cost of $1,171,520,000,000. That's right folks, according to this study, cigarette smoking costs the US 1.17 trillion dollars PER year¨....

If this is article is TRUE, Cigarette Smokers consume: 1.2 Trillion dollars in Cigarettes IN THE USA ALONE....And the Lottery in the USA Nationally ONly RAKES IN 30 BILLION PER YEAR....

Could you imagine if  those: 1.2 TRILLION DOLLARS was used on only: Pick3 & Pick4...JUST IMAGINE...

If infact is: 1.2 trillion a year they you could hold 3 years worth of it: and it will be: 3.6 trillion dollars...Placed in the bank at: 9% it will be: 324 BILLION dollars coming your way EVERY YEAR....JUST IN THE USA...You take $324 Billion each year and create the: Free Pick3 & Pick4 Exchange or free Lottery...And the rest of years the: 1.2 Trillion each year go towards, Another Pick3 & Pick4 Exchange....
JUST IMAGINE...And the Lottery Nationally in the USA just rakes in: $30 billion dollars....LOL...If the guy is telling the truth...

I have to admit: 1.2 TRILLION a YEAR, is: 1.2 trillion....What if we take: 100 billion out of the 1.2 trillion and create the: USA TEENAGER or kids Pick3/Pick4 Exchange...So MANY Exchanges...

However there is a: PROBLEM with having a: Pick3/Pick4 Lottery/Exchange like that for everyone...The USA stock Market which is fat generates: $100 Billion a year...You are talking about: 1.2 TRILLION EVERY YEAR...And is almost unhealthy....The USA might handle it but it will be like a fat person wobbling...And that is also the problem...FATNESS...If people had money to throw away or they were dollars raining, people will become OBESE...Have you noticed that that´s what occur to super rich people, they become obese...What is the first or second thing people do when they have money???Buy Food....And Obesity what causes???It will have almost/sort of the same effect as cigarettes...Remember 75% of the USA population is already not fit for military duty...It will create an Increase in health care same as cigarettes and what about debt there will be an influx of debt...And a country with debt spends less there is less consumerism hurting the economy, also you forget the drug cartels if drugs creates lots of people to die and family to be erased and drug is something illegal you can get kill handling it or put in prison for 5 or 10 years, NOW IMAGINE something that is LEGAL and you are not PUT in prison for it like a Pick3 Exchange...What you could do is: LIMIT, how much each person can win and it will have to be tilted towards people of lower resources, needy people they will have to show I.D...Or instead of having a: Pick3 Exchange make people work out to win like a Work Out Exchange which is also NEEDED...
The USA might be able to take it because after all: the USA is the 4th largest populated country in the world but it sure might be WOBBLING/Lurching/Swaying from side to side...But you could not FEED that kind of stuff to a country like Ecuador or Argentina, you could not not with that kind of money...And want to know something more LAUGHABLE...That yeah is a Pick3 or Pick4 Exchange but everytime the: jackpots are not won, the aggreggatte money STACKS UP FROM DAY TO DAY...
