Petition Ban the Production and Sale of Alcohol and Classify it as a Class A Drug Now

Scientific evidence shows alcohol is a harmful substance that can damage human health and creates harm to individuals and communities. Evidence from the ACMD is that the use of alcohol is a significant public health issue. We must make it illegal to produce, buy and sell this dangerous intoxicant

More details

Alcohol can unquestionably cause harm to individuals and society. Criminalisation of alcohol would cause crimes committed by the illicit trade, but it would address the harms associated with alcohol dependence and the misery that this can cause to families.

Criminalisation would also send the right message to young and vulnerable people who have the potential risk of becoming addicted to alcohol.
