"SUICIDES IN CITIES WITH GAMBLING WERE UP TO FOUR TIMES HIGHER THAN IN COMPARABLY SIZED CITIES WHERE GAMBLING IS NOT LEGAL."

 "ON AVERAGE, PEOPLE WHO GAMBLE LOSE MONEY, AND PEOPLE WHO GAMBLE A GREAT DEAL CAN LOSE A GREAT DEAL OF MONEY. WHILE THIS MAY NOT LEAD TO SUICIDE BY THE GAMBLER, IT COULD LEAD TO SUICIDE BY THE GAMBLER'S SPOUSE, SON, RELATIVE, OR BUSINESS PARTNER."
