NGISC Commissioner Richard C. Leone - June 2001:

"In my view, state lotteries have paved the way for great increases in legalized gambling. They have promoted the notion of beating the odds, they have been able to advertise while others have not, and they have propagated the myth that gambling is good for society in general and the government in particular. Lotteries are perhaps the hardest form of gambling to justify in terms of their costs and benefits. The best studies all point in the same direction: Lotteries prey on the poor and the undereducated.” Leone, Richard C., (The Century Foundation-www.tcf.org) Statement at CASA Conference, 2001. "High Stakes: Substance Abuse & Gambling". http://www.ncalg.org/news-leone.htm
