Good points. To add to those facts is this one; Terrace (as in africa, and many other 3rd world countries) it costs less to buy a beer (approx. $1.26 than a bottle of water ($2.29). Alot more.

Beer as a gateway drug ends up costing communities in suicide, broken famlies, children in care, leads to other harder drugs such as cocaine and meth (more so lately), and loss of jobs and on and on.

So water (or milk) or beer and other alcohol? I understand there are some people out there that treat a beer as a social thing and I am not talking about those people so don't even defend that.

Which leads me to cigarettes....why is there such an aggressive hatred towards anyone who smokes? I mean down-right hatred and animosity? This is unreal how badly people treat each other these days.
Drugs are drugs
Comment by Searle on 11th October 2011
Sheldon, I don't really see the difference between someone lying unconscious on the road from alcohol, or heroin, or whatever drug they happen to favour. I do not see the difference between the man or woman who loses their job, assuming they have one, from the effects of drugs or alcohol and then goes on the dole, all the while continuing their addiction. I do not see the difference between the person who deprives and neglects their children whether it be from alcohol or any other drug. Drugs are drugs. They are all harmful to a greater or lesser extent. I don't know what the answer is, but the hypocrisy of those who while sipping their whiskey, condemn the local drug addicts, is a little much. And vice versa. In the end we accept alcohol because it generates huge profits for the government. I would bet big money however that if you added up all the costs to society and lay them against the profit from alcohol, that the costs are greater and that we all as a society lose money on the deal. Get this. The price of alcohol is set by the government so that the price of a case of beer is the same here in Terrace as it is in Vancouver. The price of milk however is set by the market. We pay grossly more for it here than in Vancouver. This is absolutely crazy.
3rd time!

Re: Alcohol
Comment by Sheldon Davidson on 11th October 2011
You raise a very valid question, Searle.

Maybe if other drugs weren't banned then less people would be drinking alcohol.

Just a thought.
Alcohol
Comment by Searle on 11th October 2011
Anyone count up the huge number of police incidences that involve alcohol? The damage caused by alcohol to this town and to society in general is immense. Why do we need so many stores and bars that supply this drug? Better yet, why do we as a society ban so many other drugs and condemn their users and turn a blind eye to this one?
