Alcohol Policy Project Director, Center for Science in the Public InterestGeorge Hacker heads the Center for Science in the Public Interest’s Alcohol Policy Project. He chairs the Coalition for the Prevention of Alcohol Problems, an organization that conducts anti-alcohol lobbying on the federal level.

Hacker argues in favor of the whole panoply of neo-prohibitionist restrictions on alcohol: higher taxes, restricted marketing, big warning labels, lower legal blood-alcohol content for driving, more restrictive zoning, etc., etc.

He has accused winemakers, absurdly, of “hawking America’s costliest and most devastating drug.”
