Damage from Drugs and Booze,User Pays? or Folks at Home

Posted on: August 8, 2009

The effects of Alcohol, along with drugs are the cause of much personal family misery and social sabotage and they are self inflicted. If the  user pays principle, which is a universal principle applied to consumption, be it water, power or registering the car was applied to costs to repair or restore the problems caused to and by the  user instead of taxation, the free health system could most likely cope with everything else.More importantly however, the consequential damage to third parties, usually children and the innocents, the beating up of ambos and hospital staff trying to help them or events requiring police intervention to pick them up from the gutter at 2 a.m for their own protection…just who is paying for all this fun ? You are, Dear Reader,….. you are.
