In Indonesia, people have been purchasing bootleg alcohol due to the limitations on alcohol sold in the nation. Unfortunately, many batches have been toxic, resulting in the death of over 100 people in the past month alone.
Did you know that it's illegal to purchase alcohol in Sri Lanka if you are a woman? Recently the outdated law was challenged but the president, Maithripala Sirisena, held a rally not only to stop it from happening but to also make sure women continue to require a PERMIT to drink in bars! Holy smokes. They haven't been able to buy alcohol for 60 years in the country.
