Alcohol abuse is still the major story


The Adelaide Advertisermight have featured illegal drug use this morning but stories of alcohol abuse have become the major subject for stories in most Australian newspapers. Just have a look through the list of what is featured in our Crikey Breakfast Wrap each morning.
Perhaps only the debate about emissions trading schemes is given more column centimetres than stories about the evil drink. It is as if a new wave of prohibition is about to be unleashed and this at a time when the official statistics show that alcohol consumption per head is well down from its high point of 20 years ago.
