    This makes no sense. You can get 200 proof, which is a high as you can get. So why are these, slightly weaker, cocktails banned?

    One comment about the Vaportini mention. Since alcohol can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream without being digested, we absorb as much as 5% of the total absorbed in our mouth and esophagus. 20% is absorbed in the stomach and 75% in the small intestine. The liver metabolizes alcohol already in the bloodstream.

    Admittedly, inhaling the vapor leads to *much* higher absorption, but we do get a bit of the buzz before the booze hits your belly.
