This Day in History: 2022-11-15
The beginning of the Month of the fight against alcohol and other addictions. Every year from 15 November to 15 December, the month of the fight against addiction is celebrated in Croatia with the aim of alerting the general public to the problem of abuse of all forms of addiction, especially drugs. Juveniles easily buy alcohol, although this offense is punishable by a fine of 150 to 300 thousand kuna and even by closing the offender’s shop. The Trade Law clearly prescribes a ban on the sale of alcohol to under-18s.
