The solution

Re: Festive season rocked by deaths

Samoa should introduce a tax on alcohol to make it so expensive so that people can’t afford to buy it if they can’t control their drinking. 

Too many innocent lives have been taken because of excessive consumption of alcohol. They complain about the cost of living in Samoa but they can afford to drink. 

Koe foi i le home brew or drink kava instead, it numbs and relaxes the system so people don’t become aggressive and do stupid things. That’s what they drink in Micronesia at their Sakau markets and no one gets killed, everyone goes home peacefully or fall asleep quietly. Ask the Micronesians it works.
