Dear Student,
Hello and thank you for using Brainmass. This question is asking for an opinion and as such, I give you one below. Remember however that you have to answer from a 'psychological' viewpoint which means that we must consider elements of addiction. It would also be good to consider some socio-political-cultural elements however. I would begin with the following outline:

1. Alcohol addiction - what is it ââ?¬" about 50 words.
2. Possible 'legal ban' - discuss it here, about 50 words.
3. Effects of such a ban ââ?¬" about 200 words.
4. Socio-political-cultural related elements ââ?¬" about 100 words.

The discussion below follows this outline. If you have any questions, just let me know via the feedback section. Good luck with your studies.
