Mardis Gras coming up... In Louisiana, is it illegal for a passenger to drink an alcoholic beverage in a traveling automobile?

I have a friend who's going to Mardis Gras soon, and she wants to be able to drink a few cocktails in the car on the road trip, while a non-drinking friend drives. Is this illegal? I've heard conflicting reports of how/if LA conforms to the TA-21 laws. I would like to have the question cleared up before she gets in trouble! Thanks.
