I agree with you on which vice would add more to the economy. I've been to Atlantic City exactly once, to attend a neighbor with Alzheimer's whose husband wanted to play Blackjack without having to worry about what she was doing. I didn't enjoy the atmosphere. I felt that I was surrounded by addicts.
