Impose a fee on Alcohol companies

Impose a fee on Alcohol companies to pay for the damage done by their product. People have choices but victims do not. The fee should be used to pay for substance abuse treatment, prevention and foster youth housing, mental health and supportive services.

Why is this important?

The alcohol tax has not been raised in many states in 20 years. Yet the cost of alcoholism and drug abuse on our country has skyrocketed. If they can spend millions on Superbowl ads, Alcohol companies should be made to spend some of their outrageous profits to benefit the consumers and the victims of their consumers by providing substance abuse treatment and supportive services to foster youth who have been taken out of their home due to substance abuse.
