Can anyone give me a legitimate reason why Alabama doesn't have a lottery?
Or gambling in general.

What are the arguments against it?

Wait you mean SC isn't the last state to have something? We must be moving up in the world.

As for your original complaint

They're in Alabama. Why would we take their money along with their dignity as well?

Because the people of Alabama are retarded and think that the evils of a state run lottery outweigh the educational benefits of a scholarship funded by said lottery.

Right I get all that.

But what are their official positions? They surely can't shoot down a proposal in Montgomery using the basis of "it's a sin"

A lot of political types refer to it as a tax on the poor.

ie. The poors buy the shite out of lottos with no chance to win and waste the shite out of their money.

This is what I was looking for. Thank you.

But couldn't ciggerettes also be considered a tax on the poor? How are those allowed under this line of thought?

Nothing like using the government to keep people from the devil.
