Grocery stores can legally start selling alcohol from April 1 – under the reason of offering more convenience for consumers and levelling the playing field for businesses, private and public.
Sometimes it is rather difficult to determine whether the gover nment law is helpful or harmful to the public.
If the government really want to take care about public interest, then they should set up informative booths in each grocery store about the advantages and disadvantages of alcohol.
Easily accessible means increasing tendency to be tempted to get more alcohol.
We are fully aware that excess alcohol consumption always put health, wealth and economic issues into danger zone.
It can have an adverse impact on a low-income family’s happiness.
Imagine how detrimental to our young generation, if they become addicted to alcohol.
Traffic rules prohibit driving under the influence of alcohol, but our laws make alcohol convenient to buy because it earns the government extra revenue.
When someone violates the law drinking while driving, then they get penalty. Does it not look like both ways that public money is going to government coffers?
If we need to prevent our young folk from indulging in alcohol, we definitely need harsh measures to curb alcohol consumption.
Do not attempt to encourage matters that lead us toward a path of death, destruction and devastation.
