Scotland is the first country in the world to apply minimum unit pricing to alcohol. 

The Scottish Government, health charities and health professionals say it will undoubtedly save lives. 

However, others believe it is a tax on the poor. 

What is your view? Is Scotland being bold and making the right choice in terms of public health?

Since prohibition didn't work in the US why do we think minimum pricing will work here? I fear those with a drink problem will simply spend less of their available cash on food and fuel etc.
