    Idaho Inmates Sue Beer, Wine Companies: Convicts Claim Alcohol Led To Their Crimes

    Five inmates at the Idaho State Correctional Institution are suing national beer and wine companies for $1 billion, claiming that alcohol was responsible for their crimes, the Associated Press reports. The civil suit alleges that they were not sufficiently warned about alcohol's addictive properties.

    I guess they have too much time on their hands and access to law books .Should they be allowed to use the court system? .They probably would not have done this outside of prison? hmm

    Cigarettes have their mandatory warnings of, "This product causes lung cancer", etc.

    So, we already have precedent.

    Next will come a mandatory warning on all alcohol, "Warning. This product causes stupidity."

    I predict it will happen within 10 years. big_smile

      Maybe we should tattoo each babies arm within hours of birth.

      "Warning: life causes stupidity but you are still responsible for your actions"

      We could all look at it each hour, for a lifetime.

        For those born with fetal alcohol syndrome, it would already be too late.
