The Drinking Course
88,000 ( That is quite a big number. You could actually build a small army with this amount of men, but no, this is the amount of people who die from alcohol related injuries every year just in the United States. Whether it be from drinking and driving, alcohol poisoning, bar fights, or just doing stupid risky stuff, it seems to me that there should be some way of preventing these thousands of deaths from happening each year. I do not think there should be a ban on alcohol because ,the fact of the matter is, there's several thousand people who know how to drink responsibly, in moderation, and it has no negative effects. On the other hand, does the amount of people who do not know how to do these responsible things outweigh the ones who do?
Banning alcohol is not the answer. We tried prohibition once before 1920-1933, and it didn't work out so well, starting a huge smuggling crime rate, and it even created the mafia. Just making it illegal would not stop people from drinking, but instead cause them to do so illegally making jail houses to be overflowing with people who drank. Honestly drinking a beer, or “cracking a cold one with the boys” is one of the base thing our country is founded upon, or more so what you think of when you think of ‘Merica. This should not be taken away from our people's rights to do so if they wish.
So what should we do? I proclaim that we should have a drinking course!
