Abstract
Wicki et al.’s high-quality controlled study makes a strong case that local off-licence restrictions in Switzerland led to reduced hospitalizations for alcohol intoxication. Further systems-informed study of such policy changes might add valuable evidence on outcomes such as behaviour, public opinion and economic impact for different stakeholders.
