Five inmates at the Idaho State Correctional Institution, reportedly, are suing major beer and wine producers for $1 billion because, they say, alcohol led to their crimes and that they should have been warned that the beverages can be addictive.

The inmates say that companies that produce alcoholic beverages should have put labels on their products warning consumers that they are habit-forming.

Thus, the inmates claim they're entitled to be paid $1 billion in damages by the likes of Miller Brewing Company, Anheuser-Busch, and Ernest and Julio Gallo Winery.
