The crack cocaine of gambling

 

Tonight the ABC is showing a documentary on poker machines and how they're programmed for addiction. But why screen it as late as 11.30 p.m.? This should be shown in prime time to warn everyone just how addictive these machines are.

Perhaps it's because governments have become the biggest addicts of all. They can no longer live without the revenue generated by those machines and are happy to see this social evil keep spreading.
