The Enterprise editorial of October 25, 2019, questioned “if residents of Bourne truly cared about combating an addiction that ruins lives and families,” it would be in fighting alcohol, not pot. Why not both?

Surely booze can at times bring harsh immediate harm. Pot a bit less, yet, like cigarettes over time, [is] still harmful.

The Enterprise “could” help more (time will tell) by challenging readers to truly care and try to work toward teaching by encouraging those trapped to get help and to also support all school-age children to abstain. Be the example.

I agree with the editorial. More should be done to also make the alcohol supply less. Do a survey soon and it would be worth exploring. I’d vote to cut down all pouring licenses in half. Also no more package stores.
