If Beer Ads Were Forced to Be Honest

“It will make you feel different than you usually do, in a good way but the next day it will feel like you were poisoned, which you were.”

 

The fact that alcohol and tobacco are legal and socially accepted as the way to enjoy yourself when they are among the most harmful and dangerous drugs, killing thousands of people every year is illogical and ridiculous to me.

 

There’s a chart here for the harm caused by drugs:http://www.economist.com/blogs/dailychart/2010/11/drugs_cause_most_harm Ecstasy, LSD and Mushrooms near the bottom of the list, causing the least harm to self and others but yet are still regarded as class A drugs!

 

Alcohol and tobacco are in the top 6 drugs that cause the most harm to self and others, but it’s not made illegal because the public would go berserk and our government makes a lot of money from taxing alcohol and cigarettes. Alcohol especially, keeps you dumb, numb and unaware of what’s going on around you, so I can’t help but wonder if there is something more to the laws in place for these drugs because they’re sure not looking at the actual facts…
