It's not the drinking, it's how we're drinking. How difficult is it to have a night out and having a bit but not too much?

Before long we will be a nation of stay-at-home. Only fools will dare to move out into the rapidly spreading mine-field.

BZP got banned because of a few hospital admissions. Alcohol causes thousands and yet nothing happens. Perhpas if other drugs were legalised we would actually see a reduction in hospital admissions.

So it it is wrong for a under 14yr having access to such quantity of alcohol that their life is in danger. But it is not a new thing. It was a problem in the 70s as it is now. Maybe more so. I am almost relieved that only 3 cases turned up in the busiest A&E in NZ. It would be great if none had to go to hospital. Obviously somewhere in the chain an adult is involved . NZ attitude to alcohol and manning up and pouring it down is disgusting and dangerous. This type of sensationalising of youth binge drinking only serves to glamourise it. Maybe greater awareness of the abhorrent reality that happens to young male teens when adults ply them with alcohol and dope would put them off.

You never see these kind of numbers with cannabis use, its funny how a drug like alcohol that fuels irresponsible behavior is considered ok yet cannabis is seen as a 'dangerous drug' even tho unlike alcohol it isn't linked %50 of the time to violence and murder in this country.
