High density of liquor stores, along with easy availability of alcohol in a community can contribute to a variety of problems in public health, safety, and the quality of living in that community. According to Pacific Institute, a recent study across California found that neighborhoods with a higher density of liquor stores had higher number of childhood accidents, assaults, and child abuse injuries.
