States Look to Gambling to Shore Up Budgets

States are looking to meet budget shortfalls by expanding gambling and thereby the tax on the mathematically challenged.

Unfortunately, innocent people (i.e. children) suffer along with the mathematically challenged.

And so does society, who has to clean up after the mess. You know, things like the corruption and organized crime that follows the gambling industry, thefts to pay gambling debts, lost productivity to gambling during work hours, and taxpayer-funded treatment for gambling addiction.
