I want to complain about this content:

  • Increasing the cost of alcohol will decrease overall consumption and hence the level of harm, illness, disorder etc, to society, probably. But it seems likely that it will have little impact on drinkers who have a serious problem. In fact it may have a negative effect on the lives of some. For the poorest who struggle to control their consumption making them harder up can't be a good thing. It will probably increase instability in their lives, promote crime or even encourage drinkers to switch to cheaper more harmful substances to misuse. Also I expect that the bootleggers are rubbing their hands in glee in anticipation of good business times to come.
