Washington recently voted to privatize alcohol sales in the state, taking control of the substance out of the state’s hands and increasing the venues from which residents can purchase beer, wine and liquor. It was a measure voted on and approved by residents in 2011 elections, but many in Yakima and across the state are concerned that the changes to the law will mean a slew of new problems for Washington individuals and families.

Will Increasing the Cost of Alcohol Decrease the Rate of Alcohol Abuse?
One concern about the privatization of alcohol in Yakima is that the cost of alcohol will rise. Like the increased cost of cigarettes, will the higher price of alcohol cause people to quit? Maybe at first – and only those people who are not addicted. While it may be a choice to cut back on drinking when you drink in moderation, the choice is taken out of it when you are living with the compulsion and cravings that define addiction. The higher price may do little but drive alcoholics more quickly into financial despair defined by foreclosure, bankruptcy and more.
