Targeting youth isn't the answer
I agree with increasing the excise duty and there should be better labelling around alcopops. But increasing the drinking age is missing the point that alcohol harm is society wide not a problem with youth per se. Here's a well written article from this morning's Dominion Post. https://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post/comment/94089438/andy-towers-new-zealand-doesnt-have-a-culture-of-youth-drinking As an aside I think if TOP has policies for everything it could end up being counterproductive. I thought it was going to be 7?
