I am against banning alcohol because it's like coke to me, it makes adults go hyper and feel young it also creates good memories. Come on let's face it you have more fun when you are in a good mood (hyper). Adults are constantly saying how much fun they had that night even if they don't remember half of it. Alcohol is like fizzy pop for adults. It's probably their favourite drink.

I accept this debate as I disagree with your argument, con. Alcohol is a mind altering drug, which can cause individuals to take actions they would have not done otherwise. This does not refer to loosened inhibitions, but also extends to harmful acts against themselves and others. By consuming alcohol people are affecting their heath as well as putting others at risk. When drinking alcohol they cannot control their actions meaning things can get out of control and in some cases this could lead to injuries and in extreme cases, murder and other crime.

How many incidents have you heard on the news that have to do with alcohol? Barely any, you hear more car accidents than alcohol events. This shows if we ban alcohol we should also ban cars because they can cause much more danger than a drink. How stupid would that be? Then people would also have to start cycling or another way of transport to get anywhere. Some alcohols are not even that strong so if you ban alcohol then they wouldn't even be allowed any of it such as beers like Smirnoff and Alcohol Pops. It is up to them what they drink and how it may affect their health. It is their lives and if they enjoy it and they aren't affecting anyone else; let them be.

Laws change attitudes. Many times laws are the first step towards more approval of a certain new societal value and even lead the step to a quicker mentality change.

This was seen with the legalizing of gay marriages in many countries, among them also in some states in the US. In 2010 the approval among US citizens reached more than half of the population, which is a drastic improve from the past. In the beginning there was very little approval of the policy and same-sex marriages in general, an open discussion about the law, the first actual practical implications of the law and consequences have over time gained more acceptances in most Western countries towards gay marriage.

The same principle will apply to an alcohol ban. While in the beginning there will probably be a lot of protest, there will probably also be a change of mentality later on.

Cars serve a good purpose they have a true meaning. People need to travel and they need to get place, whereas they don't need alcohol.
