Alcohol is the number one legal drug that is still the most dangerous. The abuse of alcohol has led to the destruction of homes, increased crime and disease. Advertising alcohol as something that is attractive to young people does sociey a disservice. Ask those that work in jails and law enforcement what alcohol does to people. Children and teens are especially vulnerable. Alcohol adds now-protray it as something sexy and desireable. Thats not the truth.
The alcohol companies want one thing: Money. Lets not let them advertise their product as they will not tell the truth. Alcohol does more harm than any other drug in the world today.
