That's never good. For me. The story:
Russian Scientists Develop Tablet to Prolong Drunkenness — Paper

Russian scientists have developed a product that can keep a person drunk, Britain’s Daily Telegraph wrote.

The tablet called RU-21 Red was developed in Spirit Sciences, a laboratory based in California but with research facilities in Russia. The same scientists had earlier worked on secret programs for the Kremlin and had made the famous RU-21 product that cures hangovers.

If you take a tablet you need less alcohol to stay drunk, the scientists were quoted by the paper as saying. “RU-21 Red prolongs drunkenness and enhances intoxication,” the company co-founder, Emil Chiabery, born in the ex-Soviet republic of Georgia said.

As if I have trouble staying drunk. Actually, given Minnesota's draconian blue laws (you can't buy any booze on holidays here), this could have a market here. It's no good trying to sweat through Thanksgiving with the family with only two beers in the fridge. A little RU-21 Red might smooth the way until it's time for pie.
