"United Methodists Against Gambling (UMAG) and The Arkansas Conference of the United Methodist Church deeply regret that Amendment 3 has passed. We felt, and continue to feel, that a state-run lottery is not in the best interest of the people of Arkansas."

 

Looks like the people decided what was in their best interest.

It is nice to see common sense prevail. Even if one is opposed to gambling, which is a perfectly legitimate point of view to hold, why let the perfect be the enemy of the good? Millions of dollars have left the state, to assist students in other states, as people buy tickets in other state lotteries. People who are opposed to lotteries are still free not to participate, the lottery will be voluntary. The anti-lottery side did not help their cause by trying to block the issue from being put to the people. They looked like they were trying to stifle democracy - let the people decide.

The Arkansas lottery should have a subscription service, like the Massachusetts lottery, so people from out of state can participate and raise additional revenue for education.

The new generation will eventually change and shape the old traditions. I am glad Arkansas decided to join in on the fun.

Absolutely! Welcome to the 21st century! It's about time! I think there will be some issues with folks who shouldn't be buying tickets when they should be doing something otherwise with their money but most lottery ticket buyers are the ones who can afford $5-$10 each week or each month....why keep giving the money to other states? Lets keep it in ours! Good job Arkansas voters! I look at it this way, if you don't believe in the lottery, don't buy a ticket. 

 

Ya gotta be in it to win it! :) Patriot

 

Let's work on bringing in Casinos next!

I agree. Those states who don't offer lotteries are losing money to other states because people are crossing border lines to buy them.
