Cabinet rejects alcohol control bill

The Cabinet today sent the Alcoholic-Beverage Control Bill back for further discussions among the relevant authorities, in what seems a massive boost for Thailands image reconstruction program. Had this bill been passed, there would have been strict guidelines that controlled all aspects of alcoholic-beverage sales in Thailand, including a downright ban on any person under 25 years from purchasing alcoholic drinks.It seems that the same questions everyone on this blog raised about the bill, were also viewed by cabinet members on how they would identify underage drinkers and also the effects of having such a ban in place.

The Cabinet has assigned the Education, Commerce, Industry, Social Development and Human Security ministries to send their representatives for further discussions on the bill.
