why is having alcohol not illegal in a "secure treatment facility"? If the word treatment exists, whether it's chemical or sexual or whatever, clients should not have access to any mood-altering chemical. Alcohol is the most dangerous substance we have, next to methamphetamine, and it's far beyond the time that we recognized it and stopped treating it as a right of passage!

You obviously didn't read the article - or even the first couple sentences. It IS illegal to have alcohol in the treatment facilities and there are stiff fines. The article is about the "brewing" of alcohol using common food and drink items. I suppose you'd like to take away orange juice and crackers now too?

Additionally, the word "home brewing" should not appear in this article. Homebrewing is a legal activity that hundreds of thousands of people around the world participate in - in the privacy of their own homes! This is illegal "brewing" in a place where it is not allowed. It is not fair for homebrewers to be matched up with these whackos.
