Drunk driving has become such a rampant problem that there are now law firms dealing solely with DUI. Not lawyers, but law firms.
Domestic violence, including child abuse, is on the rise, with alcohol being involved in the majority of cases.
While some locales do allow open containers in public, I think the majority do not.
All four of my brothers got citations for open container, minor under the influence, minor in possession, drunk driving (I don’t know how the two older ones still have a license), etc.
A little anecdote: When I was trying to get services from a mental health agency in Reno, one of the nurses informed me that a study of 14 year old girls smoking pot indicated that they had a higher incidence of schizophrenia. I asked what the incidence of schizophrenia was in 14 year old girls drinking alcohol, she said I was being ridiculous, that 14 year old girls couldn’t buy alcohol because they were underage.
Not the slightest bit of embarrassment. And this was supposed to be a medical professional.
