    So what? People just wanting to get pilled up, it’s their business. My dad drank himself to death and nobody at the ABC store refused selling vodka to him, even when he could barely walk into the ABC store. They have helped carry him
    out a few times after he fell in the store, after he had made his purchase. Whats the damn difference, dead is dead. Buy legal alcohol, get illegal perceptions and over dose. This world only cares about money, to hell with the people, give em a alcohol drink and a hand full of scratch off’s, keeps the state in business.
