Sorry but I voted no.
Will cause people to cause more k@k
Townships will be one big party as there is no work tomorrow
More car accidents
More child abuse
More spouse abuse
More people out unnecessarily
More assaults and abuse of power by sandf and saps - yes they will be drunk on duty
Hospitals and clinics will be full again and not be able to cope with the expected influx
Alcohol we can do without. People will survive. Don't think it is necessary. We know the effect it has on people. I know the effect it has on the town. Although there are people who use it responsibility, the negative impact outweigh the positive.
Smokes I don't see a problem with. Its an 'addiction' people need and smoking doesn't have the side effects of alcohol. Might even keep some people calm.
A difficult decision, specially with the drinking culture in SA. (can't speak for other countries)
