Letter: Why not ban alcohol and drugstores, too?

The adult brain that was awash in alcohol

The adult brain that was awash in alcohol during its formative years looks different and acts differently than an adult brain that skipped the youthful binge-drinking, says a new study conducted on rats. Photo Credit: iStock

Why not ban alcohI hope the Islandia board of trustees that "unanimously voted in favor of a law to amend zoning codes to ensure that marijuana for medicinal or recreational purposes will not be allowed" has also outlawed any places that sell alcohol, which is recreational drug use ["LI village bans sales of medical marijuana," News, Oct. 12]. Also pharmacies, which sell medicinal drugs. At least then the board will be consistent.
