Getting drunk on Purim

Question
I heard that the Edot Hamizrach don’t have the custom of getting drunk on purim. Is this true and if so why not? Where did the Chachamim get this Minhag?
Answer
The Rambam wrote the one should drink more then one is used to drinking and then go to sleep. This Psak led to dispute amongst the Poskim, whether one must get drunk or just enough to sleep from the drinking. The Shulchan Aruch wrote the words of the Rambam. This is the source for those who do not get drunk. Rabbi Yosef Weitzen
