I know achohal is legal. Bur should it be? and why?
Here are the common main consequences of alchohol:
Damaged concience. Increased danger or even deaths. Damaged will- power. Loss of ability to think hard, creativly, questioningly, logically, noticably or even willingly. Fear. Chance of becoming totally drunk. Lack of physical health. Seeing other people as less than you.
Here are the common, supposed "ups" (they don't beat the downs):
Pleasure that results in harm. Getting away from problems temporarily, sometimes with problems you can wait to solve, some you can't. Satisfying a hunger for attention and reputation (in a very bad way). Helps you relax.
There are more real downs than there are supposed "ups." There's no real reason to do something like drink alchohol. If it causes more pain than good, then logically and ironically, it's just hurting you!!!
But does this mean the law should intervien, by making drugs like alchohol illegal? The law's most important porpuse is to protect. Drugs can eventually cause crime, false accusations or even death by murder, suicide or some sort of accident. Those are the big things the law has to deal with, next to war. It makes no sense that drugs should be legal.
I honestly think that alcohol should be illegal because all it does to people is bring out the bad side of them. Like my mother for example. She is an alcoholic and has been since she was 18. Look what it has gotten her: a divorce, kids who dont want ANYTHING to do with her, and a life clock that ticks quicker than usual. her life is just ticking away and all she can do about it in her mind is drink. She is dying every minute BECAUSE OF alcohol! just see it this way. if alcohol were to be banned, nobody would be drinking and driving, nobody would be killing others with alcohol. Everything would be better.
Wow...that was a brutal analysis made by protester. Sure, most of the above statements are true...regarding EXCESSIVE alcohol use mostly. On the up-side, the vast majoirty of alcohol users (adults mostly) are RESPONSIBLE alcohol users. So should alcohol be made illegal because the minority of users choose to abuse/mis-use it? Would that be fair to the majority of users who drink responsibly? Would that be fair to all the people who make a living in that industry? (Wineries, breweries, liquor stores, bars, night clubs, restaurants, farmers...should I go on?) I don't think so.
I don't see why it shouldn't be legal, but I think that some countries need to bring the drinking age up- mainly because I've seen that a good portion of teenagers are morons when they get hold of booze.
Ideally, we need to change the attitude about drinking, but because that's going to be difficult, and take loads of government funding, time and resources (which you know they'll never go for), raising the drinking age seems to be the best short term solution.
Yes, alcohol should be legal. Prohibition was tried in the US, and failed miserably. You can regulate alcohol content and make laws regarding the purchase, sale, and use of alcohol. But you can't outright ban it on a national scale. If smaller communities wish to give up alcohol, that should be at their discretion; dry counties have mixed success.
booze shood be illegal because anyonewould have it so then anyone would drink drive and so anyone wood kill someone and anyone wood rec an innocent peeps life
alcohol should be ilegal because you can die it makes you act stupid and you could end up getting hurt or you could hurt someone else.
