Now that the state of Mississippi has opted into the lottery, I can take a 15 min drive across the state line to a little gas station and buy tickets. Its astonishing how my state just refuses to even let us vote on it. People take their money to FL and GA for lotto tickets, and now the state we share out biggest border has it... on top of that most of the population is on the west side of the state anyways making it even easier. So dumb. I'm just glad I don't have to drive an hour plus to get tickets anymore. I can now make a weekly trip and try my luck.

I'd probably hit that $20 ticket every now and then. The scratchoffs seem to be a waste. Like cool you can win $500? Fuck that, I want the $100 million. The MS lotto website actually has the prizes left on all the scratch offs and most of the big ones are gone. Seems like an odd choice, I'd assume no one would buy any of them anymore when all the big prizes are dried up.
The most lax alcohol laws are in New Orleans. There is a bar at every street corner, and you can just walk around the whole city with a open container. I remember the first time visiting as an adult, I stopped at a gas station and they basically had fifths of every mainstream bourbon behind the counter. You could fill up and get a bottle in one stop.
