Allowing gambling casinos in Ohio would be a mistake for which Ohioans would pay dearly. Gambling can become an addiction as deadly as drugs or alcohol. When people first start to use drugs or alcohol they assume they can "control" their usage. Some people can control the use of alcohol and never become alcoholics but sadly many peoples lives are ruined by it. I have seen firsthand friends, family members and neighbors who have destroyed their life and the life of those around them by drug, alcohol AND gambling addictions. I know of a woman who was so consumed by gambling she would stoop to any level to get the money to feed her addiction. She had her children out stealing and robbing to bring money home to her so she could rush to Detroit to gamble. She started taking her daughters with her to Detroit so when she would run out of money at Greektown she would force them to go and prostitute themselves on the streets to bring more money to feed the beast. Her daughters were 12 to 14 years old when this started. They are both grown now and they are two mixed up young women thanks to their mother's addiction. Gambling can become a horrible addiction and the people of Ohio should not vote to let the state feed off this evil curse. Bring real jobs to Ohio NOT gambling!!! Vote NO on Issue 3!!!!
NO On Issue 3
