(Newser) – If an alcohol-monitoring bracelet can keep celebs like Lindsay Lohan from drinking—which, of course, remains to be seen—other sobriety seekers might wonder, can I get one? Can a parent procure one to keep a teenager on the straight-and-narrow? Sadly, no. For now the device—which uses the same technology as a breathalyzer, but tests sweat, not spit—is only sold to courts, probation officers and others who want to make sure drunk drivers don't get behind the wheel, notes the AP. More on Lilo's legal woes here.
