Those Politicians hate the inhaling.

Alcohol Without Liquid (AWOL) is a vaporized Vodka delivery system that enables users to "inhale" their liquor. It seems that AWOL is becoming popular in trendy clubs in certain cities and that politicians and lawmakers are quite concerned about it.

I'm a little confused as to what the problem is here. Apparently when you use AWOL you don't get sick, or a hangover, you just get drunk. Politicians feel that without the sickness-warning signs people would be in danger of drinking too much without realizing this. I have a feeling there is another motive at work here. Perhaps the (liquid) alcohol industry?
