The Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse has released a report showing that the number of teens betting on the lottery has doubled since 1992 This increase comes despite the fact that it is illegal for anyone under 18 to purchase lottery tickets In adults the survey revealed that betting had increased from 49 percent in 1992 a few months before the lottery began to 68 percent in 1995 However 20 percent of those adults gamble only on the lottery according to the report Compulsive gambling affects adults and nearly teens in Texas It is a serious problem that should be given a great deal of thought V As an adult one is free to make his or her own decisions But it is also ones responsibility to teach and consider the welfare of the younger generation The lottery in and of itself isnt bad But getting hooked on gambling at a young age can lead to serious consequences down the road for young and old alike Sadly when it comes to compulsive gambling there is no safe bet Today s
