This has lead to a wide variety of peculiarities in Finnish alcohol law. Prohibition was lifted and a new legislation in legalized the consumption of alcohol but regulated it by the foundation of the State Alcohol Monopoly. According to the liquor law of the sale of alcoholic beverages could be extended even to centres of population in rural communities. The main problem of Finnish alcohol policies is how.

      With alcohol consumption in BC rising as government liberalizes alcohol policies, and decisions around legal cannabis distribution models falling to provincial governments, a recent collaboration between researchers at the University of Victoria and the Swedish government could contain valuable lessons around the importance of applying evidence-based policy to the regulation of alcohol and.

Nordic traditions of studying the impact of alcohol policies1 Börje Olsson, Hildigunnur Ólafsdóttir & Robin Room Alcohol policy: a Nordic tradition This book is concerned with studies in the last half of the 20th century in five Nordic countries — Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden — of the impact of alcohol policies.

The Finnish Foundation for Alcohol Studies was established in It is funded mainly by the State of Finland and the Alko retail alcohol monopoly. The purpose of the Foundation is to promote and support scientific research on alcohol use in general and on alcohol drinking as an individual and social problem.

The Bureau exercised a monopoly on all alcohol and tobacco products sold in Taiwan until liberalisation of the Taiwanese alcohol market.

The first part of the book describes why alcohol is not an ordinary commodity, and reviews epidemiological data that establish alcohol as a major contributor to the global burden of disease, disability and death in high‐, middle‐ and low‐income countries.

One important tool in the Swedish alcohol policy is the high alcohol tax. For example, the alcohol tax on beer is eight times as high in Sweden as in Germany. Another important tool is the state retail monopoly, Systembolaget, which through high prices and restricted availability is meant to keep alcohol consumption low.

Curious customers visited outlets and stores operated by the state-alcohol monopoly Alko to compare the new lower Finnish prices partly brought on by Estonia's accession.Helsinki justifies the ban on the grounds of public order and the need to curb the smuggling of alcohol in border areas.

Like Sweden, Finland has a state monopoly on alcohol sales to the public, with the Alko company providing for its people's requirements.
