The regulation of the trade in alcoholic beverages arose out of a practical necessity of the state to maintain peace and order and to protect the health and moral standards of the people That there is a law to control the production, sale and consumption of alcoholic drinks in Zambia, and that this law is constantly being breached are facts which no one would venture to contradict. Although it is impossible to estimate the amount of alcoholic drinks brewed or distilled and sold or consumed outside the provisions of the law, press reports confirm that these activities have assumed alarming proportions. It was against such background that we felt sufficiently persuaded to make an inquiry into the institution of alcohol. Desirous to ascertain the causes and effects of illicit brewing and other forms of illegal drinking, we have spent some time studying the whole subject, the object being that of providing possible solutions. We hope that the paper will stimulate interest in this neglected but important area of the Law.
