Hallmark Cards said it had stopped making graduation cards containing humorous references to drinking after they got a cool reception from a Mothers Against Drunk Driving chapter.

Hallmark decided Tuesday "to discontinue manufacturing and shipping alcohol-related graduation cards," Diane Wall, a spokeswoman for the Kansas City-based company, said Wednesday.

However, Janet Cater, director of the Orange County, Calif., chapter of MADD, said Hallmark had not done enough because the cards were still available in some stores.

Wall said the graduation season is nearly over and that the cards would soon be removed from store shelves. The company said the decision to withdraw cards was up to retailers.
