Our booze-soaked cultural hypocracy

With all the drama Ben Cousins went through over his illicit drug use and the public self-shaming that Andrew Johns put himself through recently, this opinion piece in The Age exposes the ridiculous hypocracy of the hard line that's placed on illicit drugs and the complete opposite - the complete public acceptance of alcohol use and abuse in our society.

How can anyone take seriously the "Drugs are bad" message (apologies to Mr Mackey) when alcohol (a drug) is an almost compulsory part of our culture?
