Legalize Gambling in New York?

I’ve been debating the gambling issue not only in Albany but also in my own mind. While the State of New York would benefit from the revenue--as a number of other states already benefit--there’s also the serious issue of what gambling has done to many people.

How do you feel about it?


  1. Gambling would be great for bringing in additional money to the state but when Casinos pop up it changes the culture of the community. It brings in a variety of different people and businesses. If people can accept the fact that things will change then I don't see the problem but if they are are approaching it with one eye closed then its not the appropriate thing to do. What I mean is that if people only want the benefits without looking at the negative problems associated with bringing in a casino then Casinos are not a good idea.

  2. please do not, I know first hand how addictive it is
