Alcohol Pricing

An article in the Guardian discusses Minimum Pricing for Alcohol in Scotland

Proposals to introduce minimum pricing for alcohol in Scotland have received much publicity and are the subject of a recent article in the The Guardian.

While we are committed to doing all we can to help people with an alcohol addiction, we do not take a moral position on the consuption of alcoholic drinks.

People who want a drink will get one and tinkering with prices will do nothing to discourage patholigically dependent drinkers (aften called “alcoholics”).

At best, minimum pricing affects a few casual binge drinkers; it does nothing to help and treat those for whom alcohol has become a real problem.
