Reasons why alcohol should be banned.

Alcohol is a poison, your body tries to expel it as quickly as possible once it enters. Alcohol is ethanol. It causes more deaths in American than all other drugs combined (cocain, meth, etc). It causes family issues from child abuse to demeaning attitudes and slowly addicts anyone that uses it. The word "Alcoholic" is a made up word, alcohol is a drug and anyone that takes a drug repeatedly can become addicted to it.

People say weird things about alcohol to justify their own use such as "she can't handle her liquor" or "I only drink two a night, I'm no alcoholic" but we don't say "He only smoked one rock today, he isn't a cocainolic" or "he only uses meth to calm down on occasion". This is due to the mainstream promotion and advertising of alcohol, it is everywhere! Go to a party? Alcohol. Go to a game? Draft beer night. Go to dinner? Wine enhances the flavor of that food (this has been proven false, alcohol actually dulls your senses which include taste). Depress? Have a beer and mellow out (which will only cause you to be more depressed the next day).

Alcohol is the only legal drug. It is physically and mentally addictive with periodic use for anyone. There is no alcoholic gene which has never been proven. It should be banned just like every other drug.

Why allow a drug that is responsible for so much abuse, death and crime?

I think alcohol makes people different. Sometimes good but most of the time worse. They do things they wouldn't normally do like fighting, abuse, rape, murder and otherwise. It also tastes like pure crap so I'm unsure why people would drink it anyway.

Alcohol is only not banned because governments make too money from the sale of alcohol. Thinking about it. Would you ban something that made you millions to billions in a year? Probably not. No matter what it does, there will always be laws on alcohol, such as drinking when you're 21+ (in the US), no drinking and driving, etc. They really don't care that it causes death, money over lives.

I can totally see why Alcohol is a drug and I would never say anything against that. It's a fact. However, in Sweden, we sell Alcohol in a store we call "systembolaget", and that's the only place you can get it. It's legal to buy alcohol when you are 20 years old here in Sweden and I think it's a decent age actually. Perhaps they should allow drinking and buying alcohol from the time you're 25 years old instead, but it doesn't really matter that much to me. - However, I can't see the reason for not legalizing marijuana either.

Alcohol should be ban Alcohol should be ban in many countries of the world, if opposition is too much at least it should be restricted to some certain type of people , alcohol should not be sold or given to people below the age of 15 and should not be sold to old people . And more premiums should be laid by the government to curb the abnormal intake of alcohol to reduce the damage it can cause.
