More Than 60 Russians Die From Drinking Bath Lotion; Putin Moves To Cut Booze Tax

Officials blame a bath lotion used as a liquor substitute in Russia for an outbreak of alcohol poisoning that has now killed 61 people, according to state-run media. As the death toll mounts, President Vladimir Putin plans to cut excise taxes on alcohol, in an effort to cut the demand for surrogate options.

Less taxes is good, no, comrade?
I don’t think that will stop Russians from drinking windshield washer fluid and aftershaves.

Stupid people do stupid things. The world is over-populated. This seems like a good way to cull the herd especially of the less intelligent among us.
