Why Has Alcohol Not Been Restricted As It Causes So Many Problems In SocietyIn the UK, 8 out of 10 admissions in accident and emergency departments at the weekend are alcohol related, in terms of days off work, social unrest, problems in marriage and relationship, alcohol is a major cause. Yet the government does nothing to curb the sale or abuse of alcohol. I know a proportion of revenue from the sale of alcohol goes to the government, but this is no reason to blindly ignore the abuse of alcohol.
Im not sure what the level of alcohol abuse, sickness related to alcohol, days off work, relationship problems, in other counties, but a change in just ignoring the irresponsible consumption of alcohol must be looked at.
i believe counties have a limit of legal consumption of alcohol in turns of health or driving. What we need is to issue a card much like a credit card give it to everyone legally allowed to consume alcohol if they wish it, this card will have on its information the legal limit for that country, when you buy alcohol, you need the card, its swiped and the limit reduced by the purchase, once the limit is reached no more alcohol can be purchased, there fore no abuse of alcohol.
