What is prohibition?
The 21st amendment, ratified in 1933, repealed the 18th amendment (which prohibited the manufacturing or sale of alcohol in the United States). Zulfikar Ali Bhutto introduced restrictions on the sale of alcohol to Muslims in 1977 shortly before his removal from office. Since, only non-Muslim minorities are allowed to apply for alcohol permits.
Many states around the world (like the Philippines and Thailand) actually prohibit the sale of alcohol in the time surrounding an election! I think I’m glad that’s not a thing in North America!
