They must lift the alcohol ban, but make it very clear, - , if you get injured in any alcohol related incidents, hospitals will patch you up and send you home, not put you in a bed needed for pandemic casualties.
The problem is that drunk drivers hit other cars and pedestrians.

I do agree anyone showing any levels of toxicity should be turned away from the hospital.

We have to many people who cannot sit down, socialize over a few beers and call it quits. Nope, attitude is the bottle is open, and must be emptied. "Trap die prop, dan moet ons hom klaarmaak."

Socialize, have a few go home fairly sober. Not pissed out of your mind.

I do not understand the need to go out get totally totalled, knowing that in the morning you are going to heavily hung over. What is the obsession with punishing yourself every morning, because you had to drink way beyond any sensible level.

Really, it beats me - do we really have that many people, who suffer poor self image, that they can only feel "great" when they totally canned.

I dunno

So I sit at home, have 1 beer when my lung collapse, should I also be turned away?

Yep, court struck the SAB application down. Pick & Pay can no relax and make a proper business decision going forward.
