Why is the state in the gambling business?
If we want to fund schools we should do so with taxes. The idea that we are creating jobs with non-destination gambling is absurd, as any revenue generated by gambling is money that could be spent elsewhere in the community on products that do not have a negative impact on the individual and the community.
I suggest you consider the ideas of UNLV Professor William N. Thompson, also my uncle, who has advocated that only those who live a certain distance from casinos, should be allowed to enter. Otherwise, you are providing no net benefit to your community.
