Alcohol sachets dismay
"Alcohol sachets dismay"
Inspector Ben Offner, Police
Alcohol Harm Prevention Manager, says he is
"dismayed" to see alcohol being sold in sachets.
"We're exploring our options on how we can influenece their availability."
He says it's disturbing that the product is clearly directed at young people.
"Our young people have an infatuation with
intoxication - they drink to get
drunk. But when you can't make sound decisions, or you fall over and hit your
head, that's when the fun stops and the harm begins. We, as a community,
should be helping young people make sensible decisions around alcohol, not
finding ways for them to get around the law."
