Lottery Sociology and Culture

Discuss (emphasis added):
According to a Duke University study, high school dropouts who play the lottery spend an average of $700 per year on the lottery, high school graduates spend $409 a year, those with some college spend $210 a year and college graduates spend $178 a year. In Georgia, 5% of the population subsidize 50% of the ticket sales and those 5% are predominantly poor and African-American.
