If you've ever traveled across the continental United States by car, chances are you've seen a large casino building visible from the highway. It's like a pachinko parlor you see in Japan, and it's an image of a building where you can casually stop by, but Hawaii doesn't have that kind of scenery.
Hawaii is one of the few states in the United States that does not allow gambling, but talk of legalizing gambling comes up every now and then.
Last year, legislation to build a casino resort in the Kapolei area said to be the second largest city on Oahu, was considered, but was shelved. Also, what is being discussed this time is a proposal to legalize gambling on sports matches. Due to the pandemic that suddenly started in the spring of 2020, we were forced to lock down and stay at home. As a person, I even felt fear that the connection with Japan would fade. However, some people who live in Hawaii say that the most lamentable thing about the pandemic is that they can no longer go to Las Vegas casually. Many people travel for the purpose of visiting, and some even go 3-4 times a year.
It is said that the reason why there is no gambling in Hawaii is that if a casino were to be built, there would be a negative impact on the tourism industry as a resort area. Even if you don't add it, it will be enough for tourism to go. However, for Hawaii residents, the nature of Hawaii is taken for granted, and it is understandable that there are a certain number of people who seek gambling as a leisure element.
However, bringing gambling all the way to Hawaii seems to be accepting the root of the problem of gambling addiction and adults who neglect children, and it seems to bring a new spark. put away.
