Should society push to remove drinking alcohol from our county?


Alcohol accounts on average 88,000 deaths per year in the US. DUI drivers kill expectantly, but I hear of no one fighting to remove drinking alcohol, or even the strong liquor that is sold. We even sell to convicted DUI's. This seems crazy, save lives, remove the strong liquor. What are your thoughts. No one can say this is a small issue, or even an issue that will go away.

    Could you rephrase that in something that resembles actual English?

    Excellent thought, but that is not the type of thinking coming out of the millennial generation, and that generation will soon have the power to make such changes.

    Those were my exact thoughts Tom. Been there... done that... it was called Prohibition and simply created a bigger black market for something that was suddenly considered "illegal".

    1930's that was almost 100 years ago, times have changed. People want to do away with free speech now, that was crazy talk 100 years ago, Evolution was crazy talk 100 years ago too. Times change we should change and limit what kills needlessly.
