Will rescue remedy show up on drunk driving test?

Will rescue remedy show up on drunk driving test?

No: It is a collection of homeopathic "drugs, " which aren't generally tested for, and in addition are present in such tiny amounts that they wouldn't likely be detected even if someone were looking for it. All they test for is alcohol, and most versions of rescue remedy are alcohol-free. For those that are not, the amount of alcohol is minuscule and should not interfere with the tests. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. Dr. Kardener provided an excellent explanation. An analogy. There is a juggler who does very well juggling five balls in the air. Someone throws in a sixth ball and now the task requires much more focus for the juggler to juggle successfully. As more balls are thrown in, it becomes beyond the jugglers capacity and the juggler begins dropping balls. How does the juggler, get back into juggling after the balls have all hit the ground? By adding in one ball at a time. Clearly you are both grieving and worried for your son's safety. Consider talking to a grief counselor. Take good care of yourself right now, you are going through a vulnerable period. ...Read more

Going wine tasting but will also be driving. How much wine can one drink w/o becoming drunk or even buzzed?

Going wine tasting but will also be driving.  How much wine can one drink w/o becoming drunk or even buzzed?

Depends on weight &: This depends on your weight, your metabolism and how sensitive you are to alcohol. Some people get buzzed from even a single drink while others have higher tolerance, but even a single drink will slightly impair driving ability. You might be able to tolerate 1 and a half glasses of wine per hour, but I advise no more than 1 per hour. See http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/caldrunk.htm ...Read more

Is rom chocolate considered illegal to eat before driving? I will get my licence soon and I need to know. It has 15% alcohol and I never got drunk.

Is rom chocolate considered illegal to eat before driving? I will get my licence soon and I need to know. It has 15% alcohol and I never got drunk.

Not illegal but...: I don't know the laws where you live but in most places it is not illegal to consume small amounts of alcohol before driving. It is illegal to consume an amount of alcohol that will impair your ability to drive. That is usually at least 2 drinks in a short time. You would probably have to consume many ROM chocolate bars to become intoxicated/impaired so having one or two bars should be safe. ...Read more

Intestinal yeast infection and false breathalyzer reading need to know if intestinal yeast infection can increase reading of blood alcohol concentration reading (bac) during police breathalyzer test?

I had some wine but was not drunk and driving when the

No, it doesnt: This is almost entirely fiction, based on one case of someone with a very unusual yeast species which was fermenting alcohol. But even if it was that, you are still responsible for driving while impaired. If your level was over 0.8, you were legally intoxicated (0.5 for those less than 21). If you did not feel intoxicated, it means you were tolerant and clearly have an alcohol problem get help! ...Read more

What is the best way to know if you are drunk vs tipsy?

What is the best way to know if you are drunk vs tipsy?

They are the same: Drunk = tipsy. There is a clear truth to the new public safety message that reads "buzzed driving is drunk driving." the best way to measure it is a breathalyzer test. They are commercially available. It is always best to error on the side of safety and have a designated driver. ...Read more
