Why is the Biden administration now recommending that Americans drink no more than two beers a week? Blame Canada! Canadian public health policies, crafted by neo-prohibitionist advocacy groups, are trickling down into the United States and making their way into public policy, flying in the face of the medical literature on moderate alcohol consumption. They are also stunningly hypocritical coming from a government that knowingly drove up the rates of alcoholism and substance abuse by locking people in their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic, closing gyms, parks, and churches while leaving liquor stores open. Matt Kibbe talks to David Clement from the Consumer Choice Center about where these guidelines come from and why they are such a bad idea, both from the perspective of sound medical advice and good old-fashioned American freedom.
