drug addicts known as alkies have switched to hard booze away from beer and wine. what will be the impacts to our community when these drug addicts start slurping back a harder drug?

The rise of the white claw and other low carb vodka and gin beverages I think play a big part in these stats.

I used to drink beer but now Luke these, less bloating, less sugar etc.

I don't think it's really just bottled spirits but a market shift

I can drink 1/2 bottle of Cdn beer. Any more, upset tummy.

Yet Japanese or Mexican beer sits just fine in gastric tubing.

Tastes for alcohol beverages are always changing. This is nothing new and no big deal.

That is true but doesnt address booze for what it is a drug that ruins peoples lives , contributes to crime , plays a part in domestic fights .

In 2018, 19.1% of Canadians aged 12 and older (roughly 5.9 million people) reported alcohol consumption that classified them as heavy drinkers.Note1 The proportion of people classified as heavy drinkers remained stable between 2017 and 2018 (19.5%, 19.1%).Note2

Overall, males were more likely (23.5%) to report heavy drinking than females (14.8%) in 2018. The highest proportion of heavy drinking for both sexes was among those aged 18 to 34. In this age group, 33.5% of males and 23.8% of females were heavy drinkers (Chart 1).

https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/pub/82- ... 07-eng.htm


Despite the fact it is illegal to sell alcohol to anyone under 18 in Canada,Note3Note4 25.6% of Canadian youth aged 12 to 17 reported consuming an alcoholic beverage in the previous 12 months. Among those who did drink, 37.8% of them did so at least once a month. Overall, 3.4% of youth were classified as heavy drinkers, which has remained consistent since 2015.
Alcohol is the most commonly used substance in Canada. It causes more substance use related costs than either tobacco or all other drugs combined.

so it is clear where the focus needs to be , on booze , on males, aged 18 to 34 , alcohol addiction , is what costs the tax payers the most. :smt045 :smt045 :D
