What a stupid comment. PCP does not, as far as I know, affect a person in nearly the same way as alcohol. Also, it was homemade liquor apparently, which is a far cry from say beer which is the only thing I associate with the term 'home brew'.

what's the crack cocaine of alcohol? Midori?

The rate of alcohol-induced deaths in the Western Alaska census area that includes Mountain Village is more than 60 percent higher than the statewide rate

The Yup'ik community of about 830 people banned the sale and importation of alcohol in 1984


I know it's uber rocket sciencey, but there just might possibly be some small connection between the two.

Alcohol affects the GABA receptors, among other things.  Phencyclidine is an NMDB receptor antagonist.  So yes, dumb comment.

Booze is remarkably easy to make, so much so that they can even manage to make it in prisons.  I doubt pruno will be winning any wine tasting awards, but I'm sure it does the trick.  Prohibition is ridiculous.  Same goes for marijuana, which is called weed for a reason, anyone can grow a plant.

The highest I ever got a homebrew is 14%. If you die from drinking 14% homebrew you are trying to die.

Me thinks distilling is involved.

"She aspirated her stomach content, which clogged her airway," Mobley wrote in a trooper report posted online. No foul play is suspected.
...

"It's basically the PCP of alcohol," Mobley said. "You don't know what it's going to do to you or how it's going to affect you."


Sounds like this "PCP of alcohol" affected her exactly like one would expect alcohol to affect her. She didn't die from any OD, she died because she choked on her own vomit, something that happens all the time from good old regular alcohol.

What a moron.

Pretty much. Jimmy Hendrix, John Bonham, and Tommy Dorsey share this woman's fate...

Of course, they all had better publicity and a legacy to seal the deal. Well, that, and a lot better drugs and booze...

Ummm, that happens to people drinking all kinds of alcohol, subbs.

The last time this happened, we all agreed that the idiot in question did not drink home BREW which is beer, but instead drank home distilled liquor. *click* Ah yes. Same thing here.
 
2013-05-15 12:01:10 PM  
Homebrew subby or "hooch"?  Home BREW requires a brewed beverage, this seems to be a DISTILLED one which makes it Hooch, Corn Likker, Potcheen, or 'Shine. And de fact that dat stuff'll kill you with a quickness, esepcially when made or aged wrong has been known for a long damn time.   They don't call it "rotgut" for funsies ya know.

"I just arrested a guy today," Mobley said. "He said the reason why we've had so much cold weather is that the elders say it's because we've had so many deaths."

Well, you arrested a crazy man.  It's cold because you live in farking Alaska.

Alaska..
The "Home brew" they make there is probably worse than the stuff prisoners make.

Yuppers. Hayseed drinks moonshine, passes out, chokes on her own* vomit. Repeat through eternity.

*Or so we presume. It's well established by now that you can't really dust for vomit.
 
2013-05-15 12:03:41 PM  
Distillation of liquor in the home is illegal (as far as I know, in all fifty states) and is not "homebrew", which is associated with beer or wine making in the home.

You honestly believe that if people had the ability to buy safe alcohol in stores they would still turn around and make it themselves? Instead of just going to the store and buying instant booze?

/because alcohol-related death rates higher than 60% are normal for areas that aren't backwoods, amirite?

Yeah, it's an attempt to equate a known euphoric/depressant to a really dangerous peel-off-your-skin-while-laughing hallucinogen. I'm sure PCP was the scariest drug the officer could think of, so he used that. What a dumbass.

Home brew strength depends solely on the yeast and nutrients given. Strength is easily calculated, and can even be guessed from the ingredients.

Misleading headlines make it sound like she died from home-brewed beer. Liquor is "distilled", not "brewed", FFS.

Bullshiat.  Homebrew is beer.  Sounds like this lady made something else.  Or she just drank a shiatload of it, vomited in her sleep, and died.

An Inuit town might be much higher than average regardless of what they're drinking.  There's a genetic component to how well you handle alcohol, I don't think the Inuit handle it as well as Scandinavians or Russians or whoever liked -50 winters enough to settle Alaska.

I'd like to say that this is a seed of a FUD campaign to curb the rise in home brewing.  But, I'm pretty sure that this is just a dumbass being a dumbass.

The dangers introduced by home-made liquor has nothing to do with brewing.  It is in the distilling process. Liquor can be harmful if not distilled correctly.  The conversion of sugar into alcohol (brewing process) is safe. Specifically with beer, there is no known micro-organism that is harmful to humans and that can also grow in a home brew.  Farkers are safe.. unless they're moonshiners.

While the comparison is not a great one I think most of you are missing the point. What the officer is trying to say is the drinkers don't know the alcohol content of what they are drinking so sometimes they drink more alcohol than they realize. That can lead to accidental death. Just like not knowing the strength of street drugs can lead to accidental overdose.
