Britain looks into minimum alcohol unit pricing
Great Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron has proposed a new minimum price per unit for alcohol. Supporters of the new law, which will propose minimum prices of 40p, 45p, or 50p per unit, argue that the new pricing measure will positively affect binge drinkers and the people around them. However, those against the proposed legislation argue that the research supporting the initiative is inconclusive and assumes that the strain on heavy drinkers’ wallets will be enough to discourage binge drinking. David Cameron continues to push ahead with the initiative.
