I get it, some of you need your alcohol, but let's be logical about this. The only items that are able to be purchased in supermarkets right now are the essential items. For example, the malls in Pattaya have closed down completely. All that remains open now are the supermarkets and restaurants, strictly for takeaways. I was at Central yesterday and the restaurants had booths for ordering take away food on the ground level. All other levels were shut.

 

Alcohol is not an essential item, so if sale of all other non-essential items has been discontinued, why should alcohol be an exception? Alcohol, being a drug that affects behaviour, should be considered the least essential non-essential item of all.

Well since as you have stated alcohol is a drug,we should be aloud to buy in pharmacy,s since they are there to sell drugs..555

If the table in the OP is up to date it is nice to see the powers that be in Phits are being as predictable as ever.........

Back in the old days (1980's) you could buy those other drugs at the pharmacy i.e. cigarettes!

Does it not lower the risk of impromptu group gatherings? How about fewer drunk people about flouting the curfew, the need for social distancing and mask wearing?

 

But the laugh is having seen this twice last night around 19.15, the local village curfew checks are a gathering, drinking alcohol and no social distancing!!! You could not make this up. First one, when stopped in my car, wanted me to put my mask on which was on the passenger seat and other "officials" were around him or sitting at a table. The second did not incur a stop but there they were all sitting together with bottles of beer on the ground.

By that reasoning cigarettes and coffee/tea should be banned as they are not essential, they all contain drugs, i.e nicotine and caffeine respectively, it doesn't  make sense!!

We have to remember who pays most of the "packets" to the big men.  The 3 main breweries.  A lot of stock out there with a shelf life that should have went to bars and restos is sitting in warehouses. They will unload it quick and cheap come the 30th.  Hey hoh get ready for it.

In the United States alcohol and cannabis stores are considered essential buisnesses because they generate income for the states with tax revenue. I believe alcohol is taxed in Thailand why is the sale of alcohol banned? Thailand is that flush with baht they dont need that income to make up for the lost revenue?

When ( if) bars open again I think that I'll stay away from draught beer .It goes off after a while.Bars are going to be losing heaps of money.

You are so very correct!

Drinking is often a group sport.

I hope the ban is extended until November!

Happy Days are Here Again!

I would agree if ban was Thailand wide not varying from province to province.

The ban on booze has nothing to do with songkranits the goverment showing that they have the power to do it. It the most stupidthing they have done so far. What out thailand. Most people have a nice quite beer after a days hard work in the sun and expats like to chill having a nice beer. The thai goverment are shooting themselfs in the foot. The economy is getting blown to bits and every bahtthe goverment should be fighting for. Beer Does not give you the virusso why ban it and lose lots the economy. If 1 thai govermentperson had brains they would see it
