Gov’t should focus on alcohol, tobacco

So much attention has been given of the cost to society due to the opioid epidemic.

The reality is tobacco and alcohol do many times the cost to health care, work lost, divided families and people injured and killed in vehicle accidents.

You don’t see the government banning or severely limiting their use or sales. Why? The answer is tax revenue.

Gun manufacturers are being sued for deaths and injuries, but what about alcohol producers being liable for so many injuries due to their products?
