In An Alcohol-Soaked Nation, More Seek Booze-Free Social Spaces
Research links excessive alcohol use to fatty liver, cirrhosis and cancers of the breast, liver, colon, mouth and throat as well as heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, dementia, anxiety and depression. Nearly half of murders involve alcohol, according to studies. Drinking kills about 88,000 people annually, according to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington. Such diseases and social ills cost the nation an estimated $249 billion a year.

Even one drink a day is unhealthy, said Dr. Sarah Hartz, an assistant professor of psychiatry at Washington University in St. Louis. “If you’re going to drink, know it’s not good for you.” ...

Might want to check the definition of "pharisee" before you start throwing that term around, Jim. One of the key components is hypocrisy. Prohibition was championed as a means of solving what was considered a social ill - drunkenness and the impact drunkenness caused to the offender and his or her family. The illicit manufacture, transportation, and sale of alcohol did occur. But ultimately, the nation as a whole decided it liked alcohol better than not having it. Now we deal with the consequences of that national decision.

I disagree with Norm to some extent. The criminal code section of the law is designed to discourage criminal acts through the promise of punishment. Those who do those acts anyway don't think they will be caught and punished, or perhaps don't care.

Norm from Minnesota, I don't find why it so difficult to understand that as Christians we are not to be zealots /Pharisees to provide laws for punishment for actions that the general populace doesn't want punished.

John MacArthur had an excellent sermon on the ineffectiveness of Pharisees. (The Deadly Dangers of Moralism)

I don't understand why people make the argument that prohibition didn't work. You never hear people saying laws against murder, theft, rape, etc. don't work. Should we advocate to get rid of them?

Laws are not made to eliminate a behavior but to offer a method for punishment.

Timothy, apparently again you didn't take note of prohibition! how did that work out?
I believe on the same site if not on the same article it was pointed out prohibition did last in a couple of states until 1966 and is in still some counties now in various States. so, you can pass laws that a large proportion of Voters support but otherwise it's a futile effort!

as the article previously mentioned point it out all you do is alienate people they're not all I can be your political allies but more importantly might be interested in your religion as long as it isn't a political party âť—đź‘Ž

History Channel wrote:
...Prohibition was waning by the end of the 1920s. In addition, fundamentalist and nativist forces had gained more control over the temperance movement, alienating its more moderate members...

The issue here is a culture that lacks self control big time...

We will continue to see statistics like this until our society goes back to biblical rules, one of which is the discouragement of drunkenness...

I'm surprised they did not mention the cost in lives lost on the roads due to drinking while driving, or while using marihuana or other drugs.

So Jim, are you saying that since people have bad hearts—and of course they do—we should pass laws that are commensurate in wickedness? You and your Dimocrat friends would love that, wouldn’t you?

Only an observation, the article is suggesting a rather band-aid solution to a problem with the natural man and all that comes with being of and in the world; the issue ultimately isn't alcohol, but within a person before the first drink is ever picked up. The article's solution never has "The Answer if Finding Fullness and Completeness in Jesus Christ". Who could ever think that possible? They didn't then, no one will today. Nature abhors a vaccuum. Sounds like we've gone full circle, though a reference to the 'pain killer crisis isn't referred to either..

You will not see any change in public morality without change in many of the hearts individual citizens

The above reason is why prohibition didn't work! (American Prohibition)

President Herbert Hoover who once called Prohibition "the great social and economic experiment, noble in motive and far reaching in purpose." He should have realized, as a Quaker,

Romans 8
7 because the mind of the flesh is hostile towards God; for it is not subject to God's law, neither indeed can it be. 8 Those who are in the flesh can't please God.

Most conservative politicians resist regulating public morality because of the lessons learned from the prohibition experiment, let alone liberal ones.

It's a pity that it didn't didn't stick oh, there be out a lot fewer calls for abortion for one thing if it had!

This is about two and a half times the number killed by guns, but you never hear the liberals calling for alcohol control.
