While developing an aerosol to break down tars in smokers' repiratory tracts, researchers at the University of Maryland Munich Campus in Germany discovered an unexpected side effect that has raised some controversy.
"Our compound binds tightly with alcohol," explained Professor Millie Terrance. "In effect, several puffs on the inhaler can remove all traces of alcohol in the lungs."
Protestors around the world have expressed their concern to the Food and Drug Administration. "This new inhaler could be disasterous if it hit the streets," stressed Seattle, Washington resident Wendy Wran, organizer of Beings Living On World to block approval of the new drug.
"My son was killed by a drunk driver. Countless others are saved every day because of roadside breathalizer testing. Something that can so readily fool police needs to be controlled."
BLOW understands the benefits to smokers but insists there must be a better alternative that the researchers just haven't discovered yet.
