Scotland has a deadly alcohol problem. Raising the price to a required minimum is there a way of controlling this tragedy. This same move would help the US decrease the use of deadly alcohol and perhaps influence the use of marijuana which is much safer.

I guess, it is needed everywhere. At the moment it is Carnival in Germany and that is always the time of drunken people at all - I'm always disgusted to see what is happening then.

I have to agree with the above comments about the problem being global it's disgusting that people need something artificial to make themselves feel good.

One thing about this article that really got me was the picture it's like going into a 7-Eleven and finding tons of alcohol on the shelves instead of the echo Coca-Cola or bottled water for that matter it looks like you can buy it anywhere like in the grocery store and probably an air nearest to your school to I hope the world can get a handle on it like ya'll say it is a worldly problem
