Why Alcohol Should Not Be Legalized

Many who drink alcohol do so to escape to mask negative feelings of stress, depression or anxiety with intoxication and artificial feelings of well-being. I think it is too radical to say that it should be banned. I think it should not be abused! To all those who are against: Have you ever been to Tokaj (Hungary), by example?-Come once, and you will understand later…:D By the way, I agree with Arshia & Lolita. No, it shouldn`t. As human beings, we are not perfect, but that is not a good excuse. We must learn what is right from evil. We have to control ourselves, and if we can`t, that`s their problem. Alcohol should be used as a test to determine a person`s level of control. Yes, it should be banned, alcohol almost controls their minds, their actions, if I were a legislator, I would make an alcohol prohibition law, I really don`t like drunks In 1920, after the passage of the 18th Amendment to the Constitution, the federal government banned the manufacture, shipping, and sale of alcoholic beverages. Prohibition, as it was then called, largely addressed concerns that alcohol consumption caused family conflict, as well as other reasons such as reduced worker productivity.

Alcohol also has devastating negative effects when consumed by pregnant women. Even drinking only a moderate amount of alcohol can lead to fetal alcohol syndrome or a significantly increased risk of miscarriage or serious developmental problems. I watched a fascinating documentary about the temperance movement last night. It was about how men in America left their families and responsibilities to spend time with “the boys” who drank in the saloons. Then it was described how Christian women began to gather in front of these saloons to forbid drinking. The women were so obsessed with their movement that they abandoned their duties as mothers and housewives. Closed saloons. Prohibition has been introduced. Then everyone started drinking and selling alcohol illegally, and the cycle started again. It seems to me that moderation is key.

Making alcohol illegal is just a theoretical concept! No practical basis! What I feel is that people drink alcohol for a variety of reasons, and the reasons are really common in a wide range of people. Some of them are happiness (pleasure), sadness, addiction and so on. On the one hand, man is a political animal, on the other hand, man is a social animal. Every action in human society does not happen by chance, but there should be a specific reason based on socio-economic, economic, political and environmental factors. It is possible to control alcohol consumption in society more strongly through “just education”. Without finding the causes of alcohol consumption in a country, it is useless to ban it with new legal procedures. Last year, IFL Science looked at the results of two separate studies to determine whether alcohol is really more harmful than illicit substances. In both studies, sixteen different harm parameters were selected and then divided in terms of the effect on the user, as well as on others and society as a whole.

Scientists have long tried to determine whether alcoholic beverages can be good for your health, often reaching conflicting conclusions. Immune system – drinking too much can even weaken our immune system and make us more vulnerable to disease. Chronic drinkers are more likely to contract diseases such as pneumonia and tuberculosis, and too much alcohol can interfere with the body`s ability to fight infections for up to 24 hours after getting drunk, even on a single occasion. In September 2011, I filed a POI challenging the Maharashtra government`s decision to raise the legal age limit for alcohol consumption from 21 to 25. It was something everyone was talking about at the time and for the wrong reasons. It was not alcohol. It has always been about civil liberties. As someone who was not specifically informed, I read newspapers only superficially.

I said it was part of the Maharashtra government`s alcohol withdrawal policy. The intention to stop drinking alcohol is reasonable – alcohol is dangerous; I`ve lost friends to drunk driving, and my family members have struggled with alcohol addiction – but the method they chose was wrong. What they did was take away people`s right to vote. The parallel I drew as an ordinary citizen was this: if I choose to protect women from rape – which is a big problem we have – I can`t tell women how to dress to protect them.
