Iran and alcohol: Wet and dry

Illustrator’s Notes

I personally enjoy local moonshine and thought it was interesting that sanctions with negative intentions would aid the business of Armenia’s moonshine industry. Perhaps due to the sanctions, Iran will come around to ending their prohibition and begin a more nuanced approach towards alcohol through regulation.
