Stop buying alcohol and White Clay beer sales will also stop

 


After all the debate either for or against the possible legalization of alcohol on the homeland, it’s over. Perhaps this “mood altering chemical” will be legalized in the future, but for now it’s over. For the moment we are status quo, nothing changed. Alcohol will be purchased in places like White Clay, “bootlegged” on the “rez,” and consumed in excess.

Yes, many will continue to drink this illegal substance to excess until their bodies cannot take it anymore and they will die prematurely. A normal death is not considered a trauma, but a premature death caused by alcohol is. Abusing alcohol and drugs is a symptom of unresolved trauma in a person’s life. As unhealthy as it is, people consume it as way to “deal” with their trauma.
