Why do we as people allow the consumption of alcohol? I believe it should be made forbidden altogether. If medical reasons were present (external use) that is another matter. Drinking alcohol should totally be unacceptable.

- Saving society's money
- Preventing medical consequences
- Reducing violence/deaths/car accidents etc.
- Favourable for followers of certain religions

So should twatting a footie off some lad's head, Mo. But we allow frivolities on the rather crude assumption that this life is all we have and we must make the most of it while it lasts. HTH.

What does Islam say about actual poisons? Haram or harcool?

I'd ban religion before I banned alcohol. Look at the harm that has caused in the world.

But alcohol's nice. And you could say it's a very valuable social tool for bringing people together.

Drinking is a choice. It's up to us as individuals to make that choice and we do it knowing the health consequences. Anyone who puts others at risk with their drinking should stop. But the majority of us aren't harming anyone and are just having a good time.

They all profess to be Muslims, mate, and yet they all thought it was acceptable. Don't @ me with a no true Scotsman.

Look what happened during the prohibition, if you ban alcohol people find a way to get around it.

Dumb idea.

I personally wouldn't decide what is acceptable based on how "nice" something is. There alternatives to bring people together that don't cause the harm alcohol does.

Let people ingest whatever they want. If you don't fancy it, don't do it. But leave the rest of us alone.

I mean, on the face of it, it should be illegal. Most other recreational drugs are illegal, and alcohol, despite what societal norms say, is just as bad as those. You're putting a substance in your body that's seriously affecting you both mentally and physically. If the psychoactive properties of alcohol were just being discovered now, there's no way in hell that it'd be put onto the market for consumers.

However, it will never be banned, because it's not only normalised, but the notion of it "saving society's money" as you put it, is false. It's great for the economy. In the UK, alcohol duty generates over £10billion per year for the government, while it only costs the NHS £3.5billion a year, meaning well over £6billion a year net profit. Ergo, it's a huge money spinner, hence why it'll always be available.

Yes because that would go down well in the predominantly white Christian/atheist country of the UK?
