If you announce that alcohol is illegal you're just being cruel. Honestly, saying no one can have any alcohol at all is totally unjust. They tried that in the 1920s and it didn't work then either, so cut it out! Let people drink what they want to drink!
After this cruel announcement is made everyone will turn to the next best thing after alcohol. Coke (こく)! It's not a replacement, but if this unjust law won't change, then coke sales are going to go through the roof.
