If people want to abuse it, they'll go ahead anyway - if not with cider then with anything they can find in their local supermarket. What is worse is that it's becoming increasingly rare to find REAL cider in pubs nowadays. A good number of pubs have stopped selling it because of this - mainly because in many cases the local pub is not the hub of the community it once was. In my area, apart from the ones which have closed, they are now run by Managers and cater for only one age group.
