    Has anybody noticed that stabbing incidents tend to flare up around and during the approach of Pirates Week? Looks like it conjures the spirit of the pirates…

      This is what I call big concerns about a issue like alcoholism , and who lets alcohol control them . One would blame it on the pirates , and the other would suggest that we need to have cannabis dispensaries instead of alcohol bars .
      How will we ever see that there’s a problem anywhere ? With anything .

    See now if we cannabis dispensaries instead of liqour stores, then the news would change to “Man seriously high outside dispensary”.

      Can’t wait for CNS to publish these headlines 10 years from now:

      “West bay in dire shortage of Doritos after cannabis dispensary replaces liquor store.”

      “West bay gangs declare permanent cease-fire one week after legalization.”

      “People high, violence low.”

      “CIG to start funding school projects through cannabis tax revenue.”

    I know that this is a issue that government wouldn’t want to touch/address . But alcohol and the people who aren’t capable of understanding the consequences of it , shouldn’t be allowed to consume it . This subject is just like an intelligent person who are talk to unintelligent and everything is going over their head , or don’t want to try and understand it .

    Alcohol consumption by people who aren’t capable of understanding the consequences of it is not a good mixture for the society . And should be addressed .
    I am not saying that alcohol should be banned , what I saying is that if you drink it you should be responsible and be able to control the alcohol , and not let the alcohol control you . Then if you can’t , That’s where the government needs to address .

    Has anyone noticed the difference in some people , between when they are completely sober , and when they are completely loaded with alcohol . I know allot and difference is night and day .

      There are jurisdictions in the U.S. that require some people as a condition or parole or probation to take a daily dose of antabuse, which makes a person ill if she or he consumes alcohol. Every day, an officer must witness the person taking the medication. There also are ankle monitors that will alert authorities if a person consumes alcohol. Just have to get the courts to order it. Of course, after the person is off parole or probation, they can just go back to where they were — unless they have been able, while forced to be sober, to take advantage of the help they have been offered.
