What he said + Alcohol is actually illegal in Alaska. Native Americans that live there, which is what consists most of the Alaskan population, have severe issues with alcohol, natives as a whole everywhere in North America have a severe alcohol problem, I don't know the biology as a whole as to why, but their bodies can't seem to tolerate it like most of us, and they get addicted to it a lot faster than the average. Alaska has a massive issue with illegal alcohol importation, no joke i've seen documentaries where a 40$ bottle of whisky sells for over 200$ over there, people spend all their money on alcohol and drugs because literally everything is so remote. Literally almost ALL of the felonies happening there are in some way shape or form either drug related or alcohol related. THEY HAD TO BAN ALCOHOL IN ALASKA BECAUSE IT WAS BECOMING SUCH A BIG PROBLEM. Again, that's probably just increasing the issue but the #1 problem is alcohol, crimes related to it, trafficking of it... a lot of it has to do with that. Then Again, America doesn't care about Alaska, they bought it from Russia in 1895 or some shit and to this day, it costs more for the United States to Govern the damn state than what the state brings back in terms of taxes and natural resources and shit. So really, people are left on their own, and it's still like the wild west. Except with snow. and bears. and wolves. If the cold doesn't kill you, the wilderness will, if that doesn't kill you some drunk guy probably will.
