Alcohol is a hundred times worse than the effects cigarettes have on us and our society. Alcohol can kill people in drunk driving accidents.

Alcohol kills the lungs and kidneys inside a person who abuses it, thereby filling up our hospitals.

Alcohol causes people to lose control of themselves, leading to crime, violence, abuse, and much much more. Why can't our society do something ab...
