Gambling addiction and the Oregon Lottery (2)
Ronda Hatefi's brother had a problem.
"My brother had a gambling addiction, which we didn't recognize as an addiction at the time," she said.
"He took his life," Hatefit added. "My mom actually wrote on his death certificate, 'Thanks to the Oregon state lottery.' "
Now Hatefi works to educate people about the issue of gambling addiction.
