Casinos and Addiction

August 07, 2004

Thank you for the Aug. 3 article "Addicts Are Overlooked in Gambling Boom." The proliferation of the gaming industry by California and some Native American tribes is terribly irresponsible and selfish in that it fosters gambling, alcohol and drug addictions. That we have resorted to gambling and a state lottery system to increase government funds is a testament to our lack of principles and creativity.

Shame on the state of California, the gaming and card rooms and the Native American casinos whose desire for profits far exceed their interest in cultivating well-being and good health.
