    As is the practice, there will be record sales on the 4th of June. The stupidity of the law is thereby exposed.

    Who is stupid, the law or the idiot who uses them and destroys himself?

    Most politicians have a stock for about 12 months in in their houses. What a joke the laws are? These laws apply only to the poor masses.

    This is a tricky announcement to increase the liquor sales.
