Gambling should not be legal because it can destroy families, and cause depression.

Why I think gambling should stay legal.

You've stated that "gambling can destroy lives." This statement could be true, although gambling is a choice. People control their own lives and a matter of fact is that not everyone gambles. Gambling can become addictive no doubt, but not everyone you and I know go out to casinos or races and gamble all their money away. I have rarely met anyone who has had marital problems or financial problems do to gambling.

I am not completely for gambling, but I do know the negative effects of it. This does not mean it should be illegal. When someone decides to bet a large sum of money during an event, most of them do know what they are doing. This proves that if gambling is all together a terrible thing, mostly everyone you and I know would be diagnosed with depression and out of money.

People are dumb, well at least most of them. Making things that can hurt them at some way illegal can have some slight effect but people will probably find something else to destroy themselves with, you can't cure stupidity and patheticness, just let the nature do its work.
