Let’s wait and see if the decree will get implemented or “Bi2aksso” 3le. What I found weird is that traders were given a limit of 4 months to sell their existing stocks before the ban takes place which doesn’t make any sense.
Widespread and much-consumed energy drinks containing alcohol are no more allowed to be made or marketed in Lebanon, or even imported into the country, as ordered by the Ministries of Public Health and Economy on Monday. Both Ministers Ali Hassan Khalil and Nicolas Nahhas explained, in their joint decision, that all alcoholic beverages containing additives like caffeine would be banned in Lebanon as of next June.

I support this decision!
these energy drinks mixed with vodka are the worst stuff someone can drink, they make people hyperactive.
we all know its very unhealthy but what’s truly dangerous is that it offers very easy access for alcohol.
did you ever notice how many people drink this when they are driving? they just stop at any fuel station and buy it for like 2$ and here we go!
I fully support this decision too, even if we wont be able to make fun of their stupid ads anymore. But i personnaly believe that it will not be applied somehow … These companies have too much economic power to let this happen.
I AM SO WITH IT , BUT I HOPE IT WILL BE APPLIED NOT LIKE THE SMOKING DECISION
Today they ban Vodka-Energy for health concerns, tomorrow they will ban Vodka because you can purchase it to make a Vodka-Energy mix. We cannot set such dangerous precedents with the likes of Minister Khalil’s backers.
