Do not get distracted from important issues by fiddling with civil liberties

This policy is typical of nanny-state knee-jerk moralising and interference in civil liberties. Rather than restricting alcohol, the legalisation (and controlled supply) of ALL drugs should be implemented. Also if TOP is aiming for 5% of the vote then it would not appear wise to treat the young voters - who can vote, marry, drive and join the army at age 18 - like children who need to have their decisions made for them by parliament. This is the first TOP policy that I've completely disagreed with.

    This is my reaction too. Change anything else about alcohol law, but expecting a small two year cohort to bear the weight of all the broad harms mentioned is unwise.
