Alabama Policy Institute releases study on legalizing gambling in Alabama: ‘Gambling is a bad bet for Alabama families’

API’s report outlines that states that have legalized gambling experience higher rates of gambling addiction, crime, corruption, addiction, and mental health disorders. With more opportunities to gamble, the negative impact of gambling increases. This is especially true as gambling is normalized for children; early and increased exposure to gambling leads to increases in addiction that can cause emotional damage, strained relationships, and financial ruin.

API commissioned a report on the state of gambling in the state of Alabama, and one thing is abundantly clear: Gambling is a bad bet for Alabama families.
