ALCOHOL – Still – by far and away – our number one drug and number one drug cost to our families and the community. Our biggest drug related “inconvenient” truth because it is often too close to home and way too profitable to the government and the big end of town. Makes me see red!!!
“If you’re counting tombstones, it’s alcohol. If you’re counting young lives, it’s ice,” Dr Wodak president of the Australian Drug Law Reform Foundation
“Australia has a cultural problem with alcohol, and tens of thousands of Australians drink unsafely everyday.”… “We see so much carnage from ice use and yet it pales into insignificance with the problems caused by legal drugs like alcohol by a much larger group of Australians everyday,” AMA President Michael Gannon
