Tax alcohol

Posted: Friday, March 08, 2002

Mr. McGonegal must be unable to read (Empire letters, March 3) because if he was able to, he would understand that alcohol abuse impacts the lives of many each year; donuts and milk do not cost the state millions of dollars that is put into treatment programs because of alcohol use and abuse.

Yes, I know, not everyone who drinks is in need of assistance, and is it fair really to tax it? Let's face it, alcohol is a mind-altering drug, yes, drug, and for those who choose to drink, they should be able to foot the bill for those who choose to drink too much.
