There is not a single reason for any human to get access to alcohol to drink.

Edit 1:

Just to add the people who say that banning does not work is like saying banning guns does not work because people is going to find a way to get them or like saying we should not have speed limits because it does not prevent people from speeding. (Their opinions does not make sense to me)

    You should read your links.

    The tl;Dr on that article is that the government is enacting a ban of some specific packaging under a lot of speculation that it’ll reduce kids access to alcohol and reduce underage drinking.

    • This ban is targeted at a specific target, focused on a specific demographic.
    • This ban hasn’t even been implemented, there’s no evidence of it being effective. Just “the government says it’ll work”
    • We have similar bans and controls on vaping and tobacco in the U.S. and it barely dents underage vaping and smoking. That’s pretty good evidence that this is gonna fail for the same reasons.

      From the link:

      How effective are bans of liquor products?

      Well-coordinated enforcement of the ban can check the availability of sachet alcoholic beverages. This should reduce accessibility, consumption and related harms among young people.

        The word should is doing a lot of heavy lifting there. Where’s the data? Right. There’s isn’t any. Revisit this 5 years after it’s implemented.

        That’s merely a ban on one particular packaging format favored by the poor.

        It’s a far cry from a complete ban because most people buy ordinary bottles.
