And that’s Gambling

The argument about tobacco and alcohol being analogous to gambling doesn’t hold water.
During prohibition and in states where tobacco wasn’t sold, organized crime moved in with violence and other ills.  Casinos, on the other hand, once legalized, brought in organized crime, money-laundering, loan-sharking, violence and hazards to social, mental and physical health.  Yes, all three activities (drinking, smoking and gambling) are health hazards, but crime only ramps up in one when it’s legalized, and that’s gambling.
