Why does our government spend so much time and money fighting the other drugs, while alcohol is killing so many people every day? There is no bigger problem in our country than drunken people. The answer is because the majority drinks I guess. I don't think there is a more intoxicating drug than alcohol. It causes people to act insane and stupidly kill people with their cars. Alcohol is the only drug we trust people to use "responsibly". Why bother with this war on drugs when the worst one is legal? I have known a few alcoholics and they are just as bad if not worse than any crackhead except they don't pay a lot for their drug. A crackhead would never leave his room. A drunk is like a crazy homicidal maniac.
