As I’m sure many people may know, the lottery is illegal because of how dominant the LDS religion is in Utah. The religion stands firmly with its stated beliefs on gambling in general. Even though gambling is illegal, many of the residents of Utah find some way to gamble. Whether it’s going out of state, or purchasing tickets on the black market.
In order to prevent the inconvenience of many breaking the law, why not just make it legal? Why not allow the lottery in Utah?
There will be many who may not agree with it, but the lottery can greatly benefit the state financially. Think about it. With the money coming in from the purchases of lottery tickets our state could build some really nice recreation centers, parks, schools or whatever else you could think of. The possibilities are virtually endless!
Thank you for taking the time to read my letter. I wrote it to try and convey my opinion on the laws prohibiting lottery in Utah. I hope you understand my opinion and consider it to make a change.
