Gambling hurts vulnerable citizens more than wealthy citizens
Admit it already, Gambling causes more harm than good, The crime and corruption outweigh any potential benefit.
Money to benefit casino owners, State funds or wealthy Native Americans that was made by preying on people

Lost lives, The highest suicide rate of all addictions
Innocent children have been left to die in cars while parents/guardians gambled, And you call this entertainment?
Negligent representation of gambling abounds, Making it more prevalent and acceptable while killing people
Gambling establishments are money laundering, Crime ridden, Smoke filled buildings of death
AND THAT SPELLS GAMBLING
There is no doubt that today gambling is becoming more and more popular than it was before-the time when it was considered as something illegal. Crimes, thefts, prostitution and juvenile delinquency are in fact the real causes of gambling. Gambling is an addiction and can cause disruption in the family life since the player's main priority is to win. Moreover, player can do anything to earn money so that they can play, involving violence. Furthermore, people who are poor and spend their money in gambling with the hope that they will earn more, are in fact and unfortunately becoming poorer than they were before.
Gambling is harmful to individual people considering that people lose a lot of money. However gambling can improve overall economy considering that one of the only places in the United States where it is legal to gamble is Nevada. Las Vegas has an economy constructed on the concept, and they are doing extremely well. There is problems yes, but Las Vegas has had a growing economy and population. So overall it seems to help.
