    You know, akin to NORML.

    Just read how some guy in PA, USA who--despite no alcohol-related charges in 22 years--has to have an ignition-interlock device FOR LIFE because he was stupid enough to tell his doc he drinks >6 drinks/day.

    It's begun--drinking for effect is now officially suspect and will be more and more prohibited until it's legal in name only. The DOT ought to be CONGRATULATING him on so successfully managing to keep his drinking seperate from driving unlike so many others. (No I do not believe he's just been lucky for over 2 decades).

    Hell, I'll start one if noone else will. Gotta be a handful of boozers at a university of 30,000:D . Now I just need a cool acronym.

    Yeah, I actually think I'll do a university group: mostly 'cause I think it'll piss off Graham Spanier even more than NORML. Think I'll call it "Striving Towards Intelligent Liquor Laws," but I'm open to suggestions.

    S.T.I.L.L.? Ahahahahahaha. Some young folks came up with a similar group some years back. I'm sure you've heard of: Mothers Against Drunk-Drivers (MADD)? These folks came up with Drunks Against Mad-Mothers (DAMM).

    A relative of mine once dated his son, and he (Graham's son that is) was a very pot and coke user at the time.

    Anyway some sites that fight the ridiculously draconian dui laws in this country are:
