There is a constitutional prohibition against lotteries in Alabama which means voters would have to approve a change to the constitution, which so far has never been successful.
Since this is the Bible belt, I don’t believe a lottery will ever happen in Alabama. There’s a store not far over the Tenn./Ala. line & the manager said 60% of their lottery ticket sales are from Alabama. I wonder how much of that 60% is Christian folks?
(I put this in the religion section because the religious community here is so against a lottery)
