Idaho inmates have launched a lawsuit against beer and wine companies for nearly $1 billion, claiming that those companies are actually responsible for the crimes they committed.

The Huffington Post is reporting that the suit claims that the inmates were not warned well enough by the alcohol companies about how addictive their products can be.

“At no time in my life prior to me becoming an alcoholic, was I ever informed that alcohol was habit forming and addictive,” the suit states.

The suit was filed by 5 inmates who are serving a combined 51 years.

The companies who are targeted in the lawsuit are Miller Brewing Company, Anheuser-Busch, Adolph Coors, Brown-Furmna, American Brands, Pepsi-Cola, RJR Nabisco, Gallo’s Winery, Ernest Gallo, and Julio Gallo. No company has responded to the suit.
