Please put an end to the growth of the casino industry in NY. G\The appearance of gsmbling in a community brings awave of gsmbling addiction affecting up to 2.5 % of the adult population. A @% addiction rate will cost every other citizen between $280 and $440
per year! A casino within 10 miles of a home means a 90% increased risk of problem gambling and addiction rates double within 50 miles of a casino.
Casinos also absorb existing entertainment , restaurant business and hotel business and seriously curtail money available to other retail businesses.
Please, do not approve any more NYS Casinos.
