What have Pakistan's laws got to do with Thailand, are you suggesting that Pakistan is a better, more rational place in which to live?  Geez...

When it comes to this alcohol law then yes, pakistan is a lot more rational.

I am just flabbergasted at his nonsense of Government idiocy. Did someone get some pocket $ from turning them in? They should have just warned them of their mistake regarding one of the most moronic Thai laws there is. Why didn't they just go in with their guns shooting and kill them. 50,000 is the same as that in this virus day and age.

I get the feeling if they start going around all the bars then nobody will go in, people will just stay home to me the police are just looking for any excuse I could be sitting there on my own having a beer with a tiger label on the glass is it going to cost me 50k or the owner of the bar for giving it me?

Its certainly possible. Also a reason I no longer mention beer or show pics of beer on my facebook page.

In Netherlands there was a time where it was allowed to promote tobacco, now they are left with alcohol signs.

When the alcohol signs had to leave, how to promote... awful

Which is not ugly, this is one street, the Walking Street. But everywhere like this? No thanks.

The Alcoholic Beverage Control Act of 2008 states that it is prohibited to advertise alcoholic brands in a way which induct people to drink.

 

For displaying just the symbol from the company is allowed.

So a print on a thirt, a big Singha on a building or poster, which is all good.

But not on glasses or showing bottles in the adverts.

This would be allowed

This not.

 

 

In 2017 the ban on promoting in public was effectively enforced. Check this report .

If you promote Cider and call it apple juice, everything is fine.

Maybe call beer alcoholic coloured water.

You have somewhat of a point there....  As far fetched as it may seem, it is not completely inconceivable that ‘someone’ gets pulled up under the ‘computer crimes act’ for posting photos of beer...  We’ve seen worse. 

 

 

I know, very far fetched, but we live in a country where people (elders) are jailed under drugs offences for forging for mushrooms. Parents are Jailed for replying to a post with a simple ‘yes’ under lesse Majesty Laws.

Indeed. What a stupid law. Thailand is fast becoming a worse nanny state than even Australia. Give it a few years and even driving will be less of a pleasure than it currently is in Australia.

 

But the difference is that Thailand is kind of a dumbo, childish nanny state. You have all these restrictions on the sale of alcohol, but they haven't figured out yet that they could instead restrict alcohol sales to a few controlled sales channels (like liquor stores) rather than allowing 7-11s to sell them, and asking for ID to verify proof of age in all cases. This would be more effective at curbing underage drinking while still allowing adults to enjoy their vice.

Driving is more of a pleasure in Thailand than Australia ????   Are you taking the <deleted> ?
