Supreme Court's concern about locally produced vodka

Vito Helmut Sakaria, 61, Luatuanuu

It a small bottle but it's not like vodka from a long time ago. But I cannot control my son when he is drunk. So I think it should be stopped. It's not about the money but it's about life because life is really important. Safety is important but when I see the youth these days, if they get drunk then I would instantly know that it's vodka. It would be nice if they lower the percentage of alcohol.

Saumani Moa, 50, Fasitoo

In our church, we support the protection of our health, and alcohol is not appropriate. It affects health and it causes problems in families. It is also a waste of money and children are also affected by it. It should be stopped or removed, especially now because of many problems that are caused by alcohol.

Faafetai Ualema, 62, Fasitoo

It should be stopped. We should think about the health and lives of people. My opinion is that it should be stopped. It is a waste of money. We are looking after our families during the COVID-19 pandemic so my opinion is that it should be stopped.

Lilian Filo, 35, Lalomauga

It should be stopped because there have been many problems attributed to the vodka produced here in Samoa. It affects the mind of others and problems happen when people are drunk so I think it should be stopped.

Ulata Savaiinaea, 40, Solosolo

I don't know why it is nice because I don't drink alcohol. There are a lot of problems and if someone drinks too much alcohol then we start to show bad behavior. Some people can still control their mind when they drink but in my opinion, these days are different and there are many problems happening right now with the youth. So I think it should be stopped so there would be a good change for Samoa and for the young generation.

Fatima Moana, 34, Lefaga

I don't drink alcohol but I think these vodka should be removed because it causes problems in the youth. There are a lot of fights happening in the family because of the youth. Places that produce vodka shouldn't be brought here. We should protect our youth.
