It's still the drunk Indians.

White Clay isn't circumventing anything, the consumer is.
Isn't the real complaint, underlying everything that alcohol is costing the community, socially and economically? This isn't just an Indian problem but a problem everywhere, especially where I live. So, if any group of people, like there are dry counties here and different laws in different states, wants to limit or restrict alcohol sales, so be it if they have the support of the people. I make my own alcohol to cook with.

But there is no getting around the fact that alcohol is a mind-altering toxic substance. It will kill you in high doses, some people in relatively low doses. There is no way to know which kind of person you are. Because it is a mind-altering substance, you can become intoxicated enough to accidently kill yourself.

The same can be said of airplane glue.

However alcohol is addicting, and airplane glue is not.
While coffee is addicting, it will not kill you.

I say, sue the manufacturers, who are making all the money, and get non-Indians to help you, or better yet, have the government force alcohol and tobacco companies to pay for the medical and other treatment costs and also for medicines and nicotine products to people who request to quit and cannot afford them. They will pass this back to the consumer through price increases.

Either that or force every alcoholic to keep a bank account with enough money in it to pay for their own treatment and damages resulting from their drinking, including liver transplant, so over a million. This will never happen.

An alcoholic only needs to stay sober for 6 months to qualify for a new liver. this takes away from people who do not drink but have illnesses outside of their control, like cancer or hereditary conditions. And some return to drinking once they get the new liver.
