    I have found that the revenues from “sin” programs really don’t get any permenant statuses for allocations. Sin taxes are generally are made up of Alcohol, tocacco, gambling, etc.

    The states may initially earmark the revenues but in in a short time they dump it into general revenue income and use it wherever they deem necessary. Most of the time the campaign rhetoric to get a measure passed will be to earmark schools or other similar budget programs.

    Obviously but initially the pitch is somewhat deceiving when it need not be pitched this way.
