All states should have lotteries. The argument that people will spend/waste their money on gambling is silly. There is nothing to stop people spending/wasting their money on alcohol. Prohibition created more problems than it solved. If you state doesn't have a state lottery, vote with your pocket and play a neighboring state lottery, but informing you local politicians, when they see revenue going to other states they will listen. If you are unable to get to another state, you can subscribe to the Massachusetts State Lottery by phone, there are no residency restrictions.

          Tennessee watches millions of Tennessee dollars go to casinos in Indiana, Illinois, and Tunica, Mississippi, so I guess things kind of balance out.

               The southernmost casino in Illinois (Metropolis - Harrah's) gets an awful lot of business from Nashville.

                  Powerball and Mega Millions should just merge, or be dropped, and there should be a nation-wide Lotto USA, available in every state.  

                  Let it be Federal and states that don't have their own state lottery couldn't keep residents from playing the lottery at all.  

                  Heck, sell the tickets at the post office.

                    Some good thoughts in that.
