Many people walk to the place of their Lottery Ticket purchase.

Many people drive a big SUV or a fuel flex car to buy THEIR'S??

What do YOU>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> THINK????

Should the state you live-in ADD a carbon-tax to YOUR ticket??

LOL

    No.  I buy my tickets when I am out doing other buisness.

    Autos have a hidden fuel consumtion tax already when you buy them new. Some vehicles are taxed in the thousands that you do not see on your vehicle purchase ticket.

              No!  We're already paying a voluntary tax for schools and other government services just by buying the tickets.  And, like others here, I almost always buy my lottery tickets when I'm out walking.  On the rare occasion I drive, I stop at a lottery retailer on my way to other errands such as grocery shopping, and I'll bet the majority of other people do the same.

              I know some people do drive to other states to buy lottery tickets, so maybe those should be carbon taxed as most are making the trip just to buy tickets.  They could check ID and add a dime to each ticket sold to an out-of-stater.   ROFL

                i live in nc and always drove to va to buy tickets. after nc got the lottery va tickets at the state dropped considerably. it was the same at the sc border. i remember waiting in line at a sc border for 2 hours when the powerball was over $300. other states still depend on that business. doing that would drive away good business and most of the time other purchases are made as well.

                      That makes about much sense as adding more tax onto gasoline because people drive there.

                          Were already overtaxed as it is. How about this if the states keep taxing us we should charge them a fee for purchasing lottery tickets and other things.

                          We already pay a carbon tax when we buy fuel.

                          Where did you come up with this silly poll.  

                          I will never pay another cent more for lottery tickets then what they charge now. If however they increase the payouts or odds i might. But I'm not holding my breath for that to happen.

                            If there was going to be a carbon tax on a product (doesn't matter whether it's lottery tickets, a loaf of bread, or a ton of dry ice), the tax should be based on the carbon footprint from manufacturing  the product.

                            There are a some people who burn more gas in their Honda Civics than some of the people who drive Hummers or Ford Expeditions, and a 15mpg van with 6 people in it is far more fuel efficient than a Geo Metro with only the driver.The proper way to tax our use of fossil fuels is to tax the fuels.
