You talk about folk becoming addicted to gambling if North Carolina gets a Lottery.. Well, how do you think the ones who are addicted already, got that way North Carolina don't even have it yet.. So you can't bace addiction on North Carolina's games. They got that way from other states.. So, why should North Carolina make them well? It didn't make them addicted. So I don't see that as being a good reason to not have a lottery in North Carolina.. If folk want to spend their money to gamble, then they are going to do it whether or not North Carolina has one. . Being poor is not an excuse either.. So many poor folk have become rich by playing the games. That is a good thing.
Folk makes choices; even if they choose to gamble in other states.
