yeah good idea, totally support it, actually i think governments if of course they are well managed (big lol) should always have such operations like production of alcohol and tobacco, gambling and b1tch houses industry under it's control and use money earned to keep things under control and do not let it's citizens become addicts/degens.

Hello my friends and fellow mobsters
Well the idea seems to be real good such tax on the "addictive" products (alccohol ,tobacco,even sugar added produts ) always have the idea that they are protecting the public health and that all of the money will go to health care and so on but the true is when they need money to sort public finances those are the first to go up

Taxing the so called addictive to protect your own citizens, it is just silly if you ask me. Tax is a tax, and the fact you are raising it in some products is just ridiculous. If you want to protect your own citizens just find better solutions, than cheap excuses

This is just another anti-addiction legislation that has been introduced. There may already be millions of people whose gambling hobby turned into an addiction. Those whose gambling compulsion has gone unnoticed are going to have to tackle their problem eventually.
The system seems to me to be correct and of course a lot of people suffer from addiction to games ...... therefore it is necessary to fight evil for his own money .... it's very sad that so interesting an engagement as a game causes dependence (((

I think making taxes or more taxes than already is the norm gor products that are not good gor peoples health or make them sick or silly is good, because then with this money such people can get health services and start living normal lives again.

LOL..... so the government needs some money to prevent the dangers of gambling, so open more gambling casinos and set a charge to help those poor individuals that can't stop themselves. So, it's a gambling addiction tax....paid for by gamblers! Great idea. It's self funding and therefore of total benefit to everyone!
Posted by doubletop777: It is very strange to see that gambling establishments will try and help to prevent gambling addictions!! Seriously though, i think that any help offered to these guys should be welcomed.
It seems to me there is nothing strange about it .... and the government of Japan as I think did the right thing ... if you need to fight the consequences of the game for money then get the money for this the most correct with the perpetrators of the problem
