Posted at 3:34 PM, Feb 21, 2018

The Silver State is home to the city of sin but apparently, Nevada as a whole is one of the most sinful states in America.

According to a WalletHub study, Nevada ranked No. 3 with Florida and California taking the first two spots. 

While Nevada wasn't found to be the most sinful, it was ranked No. 1 for laziness and greed. The Silver State was 5th for jealousy, 14th for lust, 29th for excesses and vices, 29th for vanity and 30th for anger and hatred.  

Even though Nevada ranked lower for anger and hatred, WalletHub found that Nevada was third for most violent crimes per capita. 

The most sinful state, Florida, had jealousy as its No. 1 vice while California had vanity as its top one.  

Vermont was found to be the least sinful state.
