Letter: Alcohol is worse than tobacco

Published 10:10 pm Wednesday, April 25, 2018

I see on the news that police are fed up with drunk drivers. The solution is real simple: Get all the stores to stop selling alcohol.

Our government is so down on tobacco and tobacco products. You see these ads now talking about  how bad tobacco is. But every time I go to most any store they’ve got so much wine and beer that you can hardly find the groceries. I am exaggerating some, but you get the idea.

Why are political leaders so down on what effects tobacco has on people, but they seem to push people to drink alcohol? It’s plumb stupid.
