  Alcohol without liquid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The machine vaporizes alcohol and mixes it with oxygen, allowing the consumer to breathe in the mixture.
Hangovers are allegedly prevented due to the fact that the alcohol is delivered with oxygen to the brain.

By sending alcohol straight to the brain, the device is purported to create a more intense buzz while eliminating carbohydrates and hangovers.
However, reports are inconclusive as to whether the vapor is evident on a breathalyzer test, or registers accurately on a blood test for blood alcohol content.

 Pols closer to banning Alcohol Without Liquid
The device, popular in clubs in Europe, is commonly referred to as Alcohol Without Liquid, or AWOL.
Kevin Morse, president of Spirit Partners Inc., the North Carolina-based company that distributes the device in the U.S., said because the alcohol leaves the body the same way as it would in traditional drinking methods, including the mouth, an AWOL user would be just as susceptible to a Breathalyzer test as someone drinking liquid alcohol.
"The alcohol will definitely register on the Intoxylizer 5000, commonly called the Breathalyzer test which is used by law-enforcement officials to apprehend drivers who are under the influence of alcohol," Morse said in an August 2004 press release announcing the company’s distribution rights.

 Is inhalable alcohol a good idea? - By Amanda Schaffer - Slate Magazine
Normally, when you drink a glass of wine, say, or a shot of vodka, alcohol is absorbed over time, through the lining of your stomach and small intestine (roughly 10 percent to 15 percent in the stomach, 85 percent to 90 percent in the small intestine).
This is because vaporized alcohol, as it enters the bloodstream directly from the lungs, is not subject to the protective effects of the digestive system—notably, the impulse to vomit.
The legality of AWOL—at least for venues licensed to serve alcohol in New York state—seems to turn on two relatively obscure provisions of the state's Alcoholic Beverage Control law—a law enacted in 1934, shortly after the repeal of Prohibition (in 1933).

 AN ACT BANNING ALCOHOL WITHOUT LIQUID MACHINES.
It is anticipated that few offenses would be prosecuted each year and, consequently, any revenue gain from criminal fines under the bill would be minimal.
On average, it costs the state $2,150 to supervise an offender on probation in the community as compared to $35,040 to incarcerate the offender (note that both figures include fringe benefits).
This bill prohibits selling, purchasing, or possessing an alcohol vaporization device, which it defines as a device, machine, or process that mixes spirits, alcoholic liquor, or any product containing alcoholic liquor with oxygen or another gas to produce a vaporized product for human inhalation.

 Distilled Spirits Council Urges Ban of Alcohol Vapor Devices ("alcohol without liquid" - AWOL)
The hypocrisy of liquid alchohol companies complaining about inhaled alchohol on the basis that they want to safeguard the public from alchohol abuse and drunk driving is just staggering [pun intended].
Inhaled alcohol enters the bloodstream through the lungs instead, and the result is a less-filtered, low-calorie buzz.
Regardless, the body expels alcohol the same whether it is inhaled or sipped and can be detected using the same methods so AWOL cannot be used to get around alcohol laws.
