Surely consuming alcohol in moderation is not the same as consuming illegal drugs?

  1. Dr Alf is correct but this graph is the latest attempt by Governments and others, who should know better, to decriminalize drugs and then tax them.

    They do this by pretending that all alcohol use is bad, even if it is a man and his wife and family sitting down and having a meal together and drinking wine with it. By showing the worst examples of alcohol misuse by “night-clubbers”, City bankers engaged in alcohol-fueled excess losing billions on dodgy trades and consorting with prostitutes, pensioners engaged in excess pickling their livers, and becoming depressed through alcohol knocking all the vitamins out of their bodies, they seek to equate alcohol with heroin. By doing this, they seek to show that they have “lost the war on drugs” and are trying to help the people by spending the money on better things.
