"...Police in the Baden-Wrttemburg city of Tuttlingen responded Tuesday to growing online chatter among teenagers that they could become intoxicated using the vodka tampons without having alcohol on their breath. ...In early March a 14-year-old girl collapsed during a street festival in Konstanz, apparently highly intoxicated from using a vodka tampon, the paper reported..."

4. "Montana State Rep. Hale Defends Drunk Driving"
Edited on Thu Mar-31-11 10:33 AM by Angry Dragon
Rep. Alan Hale, R-Basin, was one of the 12 no votes on the measure. Hale, who according to his campaign website owns the Saddle Bar and Caf in Basin, gave a passionate speech in opposition to not only HB14, but to all of the bills aimed at stiffening DUI laws. According to Hale, the DUI bills are destroying small businesses by preventing people from drinking and driving.

Maybe just a little conflict of interest

Adding this from one of the comments

This just made my Tip 5 List of the stupidist things Reps say. So driving drunk and possibly killing someone is a way of life just to get to and from a bar? I had to comment on this because this could be a WI story. WI has a drunk driving problem. We just can't get a handle on it. In my state, if you are caught drunk driving for the first time and happen to kill somebody while doing it, you do not get jail time. If you get caught a SECOND time and kill somebody, then you go to jail. So much for life having any meaning. That's because according to our Republican AG, J.B. Van Hollen, drunk driving doesn't make you a criminal. His exact quote is this: "I have friends who have been picked up for drunk driving and they are not criminals." (Totally missing the point that while driving drunk you can kill somebody.....which goes on alot here in WI) What an asshole! Just another douchebag that represents WI.
