I think this is a good thing. For one, it isn't that much money in the grand scheme of things. For another, without a study, there is no way of knowing factually what the answer to the question is. Hate all you want, scientific studies provide a better foundation for politics than belief and guesswork.

This requires a study??? Common sense would indicate that sleeping around (intoxicated or otherwise) would increase risk of any STD let alone HIV/AIDS... SMH...
Well we sure do know who all the anti common sense folk are not don't we.
Who the hell needs a half a million dollar study for that ?
the goal of the proposed project is to increase the scientific understanding of the episodic dimensions of sexual partners and substance use as they increase the risk of HIV transmission among African Americans.
Do you really need a study to tell you that getting drunk and having unprotected sex is a BAD idea?

Are you really suggesting a new form of transmission is going to be discovered with this study.
Or an already proven one will be disproved.
I have worked with real scientists , inventors and innovators.
