In America, drinking families are being destroyed. There was a 25 percent increase in alcohol-related deaths in the year 2020. In 2019, 78,927 people died due to alcohol. In 2020, this figure reached 99,017. Most of the deaths are due to excessive drinking.
Such deaths have now become a cause for concern. To stop them, people are demanding to bring a new policy and increase the tax on liquor. However, the other side of this alcoholism is that the US administration has benefited from it. In the year 2021, the Treasury Department collected 8% more revenue than in 2020.
Where there is less tax on alcohol, there are more deaths
In the year 2021, 2,153 people died from alcohol in the state of Oregon. It is included in the states where the tax on liquor is the lowest at 3 per cent. Another reason for the rise in deaths is the lifting of restrictions on the delivery of cocktails at home and out of hotels in Oregon, leading to increased consumption. Whereas, earlier there was a ban on home delivery of liquor. This restriction was removed by 28 states out of 50.
With the increase in tax, the amount of drinking alcohol comes down
Reginald Richardson, director of the Alcohol and Drug Policy Commission, believes that increasing deaths due to alcohol cannot be ignored. We need the right policy to reduce alcohol-related deaths, says Dr. Tim Naimi, director of the Canadian Institute of Substance Use Research. In a research by Alexander Wegener and his team, people found that in the event of a high tax on alcohol, people tend to drink less alcohol. This also significantly reduces car accidents and alcohol-related diseases.
