MJ News: Alcohol Ban Causes Australian Aborigines to Smoke MarijuanaTopic: MJ News
Contributed by skip on Tuesday, March 04 @ 21:17:57 UTC

A recent ban on alcohol in remote Australian Aboriginal villages has resulted in a big increase in the use of marijuana by adults. The Australian government hoping to crack down on the social ills of alcoholism in those remote villages has instead encouraged the local production and consumption of marijuana.

This article claims there are some vague social costs to the switch over, and doesn't even mention what they might be. Perhaps there's some kind of improvement in the social lives of Aborigines now that they've been weened off their addictions to alcohol? Of course the Australian press would be loathe to report that marijuana consumption improved anyone's life, but in this situation, that is likely to be the case!
