Because when most people drink alcohol, they aren't necessarily trying to get drunk and can exercise self-control and moderation. It is the group of people who cause DUI crashes and have addictions that give alcohol a bad name.

Many people also get angry that while drugs are illegal, alcohol is legal. But, the answer is simple really. When a person does drugs, they expect or want a high, but someone who drinks alcohol isn't necessarily doing it to get drunk, which I would compare to the high of drugs.

Because most people can exercise self-control Self-control over alcohol huh? Yeah please... alcohol is just as bad as taking acid or any other lethal drugs. If you take the effects of alcohol and match it with those... illegal drugs. It is either matched OR it is higher!
