UK: Alcohol snorter raises concerns
A new alcohol snorting device available in the UK is causing concern among medical experts and alcohol concern groups. The alcohol-without-liquid vaporiser, marketed under the name Awol, allows users to inhale or snort alcohol through a tube.
Alcohol experts have warned that excessive prolonged use of the Awol vaporiser could cause brain damage.
Alcohol advisory service, ACAD, have registered an official complaint about Awol stating that the strength of the alcohol vaporised cannot be monitored.
The machine's inventor Dominic Simler, however, defended the device, claiming that there is a built-in safety device which means it takes about one hour to inhale one shot of alcohol. "It is hardly something people are going to get very drunk on," he said.
