GENEVA (Reuters) – Alcohol causes nearly 4 percent of deaths worldwide, more than AIDS, tuberculosis or violence, the World Health Organization warned on Friday.

Rising incomes have triggered more drinking in heavily populated countries in Africa and Asia, including India and South Africa, and binge drinking is a problem in many developed countries, the United Nations agency said.

Yet alcohol control policies are weak and remain a low priority for most governments despite drinking's heavy toll on society from road accidents, violence, disease, child neglect and job absenteeism, it said.

Meanwhile cops are kicking in families' door, shooting their pets, even shooting the families themselves over plant matter that hasn't been shown to kill a single soul in it's 10,000+ year history with humans...

America needs to pull their heads out of their collective ass and stop punishing people for victimless "crimes," and start doing something about these big corporations (many government backed) who are killing more of us every second of every day...
