    Gov Moves to Crack Down on Online Sales of Booze

    KhaoSod English

    BANGKOK — The country’s top alcohol regulator on Thursday approved a draft regulation to ban any online booze sales.


    The move came after alcohol watchdog groups urged the government to crack down on the online sales of booze, which surged during the pandemic lockdown. Deputy health minister Satit Pituthecha said the new rule aims to prevent consumers from easy access to alcohol beverages.


    “The COVID-19 outbreak has given rise to online sales of alcoholic beverages, especially on the social media where promotions and home delivery services are offered,” Satit said. “There’s no age, time, or location restrictions, resulting in uncontrolled access to alcohol and difficulty in enforcing the alcoholic beverage control law.”

    If only they could trust the public eh.

    Then again, UK licensing laws drawn up during world war 1 have not changed dramatically for the lsat hundred years. As far as I can recall, supermarkets there still sell cans and bottles whenever they are open?
    Thais definitely not to be trusted with such largesse.

    I think you'll find they have.

    In WWI it was illegal to buy a round.

    Are you using this as an excuse?

    No, it’s more about opening hours, and off sales, the latter having improved.

    I wonder if businesses like ZippBike will find a way around it. Been quite enjoying crates of beer appearing on my doorstep.
