DUI - The drug - CAFFEINE



Man is pulled over for driving erratically-

" a breathalyzer test which showed a 0.00% blood alcohol level, his attorney said. He was booked into county jail and had his blood drawn, but the resulting toxicology report came back negative for benzodiazepines, cocaine, opiates, THC, carisoprodol (a muscle relaxant), methamphetamine/MDMA, oxycodone, and zolpidem.

The sample was screened a second time by a laboratory in Pennsylvania, according to documents provided to the Guardian, where the sole positive result was for caffeine a substance likely coursing through the veins of many drivers on the road at any given time."


And it goes on from there - full story:

1. LOL! I get the "shakes" from drinking too much coffee sometimes!

I'm thankful that I don't have other addictions, but I'm definitely addicted to coffee. Yet not caffeinated sodas!

I guess I should be more careful!

3. Drink enough RED Bull and you'll be bonkers too...

I see people drink can after can, and now its being used in mixed drinks.

5. Red Bull and vodka is yummy

 

I drank plenty in my 20's. Now all I'll have occasionally is a beer.

4. Stand on the corner of any intersection with a camera.




You'll lose track of how many cops go by sipping a cup of coffee.

Of course you take your own chances of what might happen when
they see you pointing a camera at them.

7. The cops where I live seem to get angry if you look at them and wave with a smile!

It's very different from where I spent most of my childhood not far from here. The demographics are about the same with the same low level of crime, but the cops around here are simply dicks. I assume it's an attitude from the top (Chief of Police) that percolates down?
