Toying With Taxes: Alcohol

They way consumables are taxed is very regressive and doesn't account much for the healthy disincentive factor.

Here's how I suggest taxing alcoholic beverages, for example:


It seems reasonable to tax per gram of alcohol, doesn't it? Once measly cent per gram of alcohol?
No, probably not fair for bar owners, but the tax might only be applied toward the retail end.
