If you are impaired, regardless of whether you're impaired on a drug that you have a medical need to take, you are not allowed to drive.  Drivers are dangerous when they're impaired so I'm going to say no.
 
2017-08-16 08:35:43 AM  
Yes
You can also go back to prison for having your pee light up for pot even if you have a doctors prescription for medical marijuana if the terms of your parole are no drugs.

Of course not. It's DUI. You're under the influence. Doesn't matter what it is.

What is this Dr's name, and does he take Blue Cross? Also, does the booze have a copay?

Misread the headline as can you get a DUI, hence my yes.

Okay, your doctor told you to drink. But did he tell you to drive?

2017-08-16 12:02:23 PM  
having  prescription for marijuana does not mean you are allowed to drive while intoxicated. There is this neat little thing on mind-altering prescription bottles that says "Do not operate heavy machinery while taking this prescription." What an IDIOT. What a shame he didn't wreck into a telephone pole and die.

"Taylor explained that his doctor had told him to drink alcohol to avoid withdrawal symptoms "
Doctor telling you to drink small amounts of alcohol to avoid killing yourself from going cold turkey is vastly different from doctor telling you to go get plastered.
Either way, does someone really think an alcoholic can without supervision make the decision to slowly drink less and less?

the right to drive is right there in the bill of rights.  Study it up, sheeple.

I'm always paranoid that a good percentage of people on the road during the day are on xanax or vicodin and kinda wingin' it.

After I had surgery I rode the bus until I was taken off the pain stuff, but not everyone has that luxury, nevermind willingness.
 
2017-08-16 12:06:45 PM  
this is probably one of the same doctors that over-prescribes opioids. Doctors know better than to not treat a patient, let alone an addict, like a dumb child. This doctor should have his medical license suspended.

Or cold sober and simply not paying attention.

Let's get on with the self driving cars already.

Lol, but take a look at that guy.  That is not a guy who gets drunk off of a sixpack. He looks like 750 ml of bourbon a day.

Sounds more like he's medically required not to drive since he is expected to be impaired

So no

That actually happens sometimes.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auto-brewery_syndrome

Some foods/cleaners can also show up in urine tests as alcohol. I was on probation and was allowed 0 alcohol. They randomly tested us and told us to specifically avoid some cleaners (can't recall which ones) bc exposure to them would show up as a positive for alcohol in urine and it didn't matter what percentage as we were on probation. .000001 ppm would be a violation.

They can, but not the type that goes out and drives with a .28bac.

Between  this an breathalyzer accuracy, you should be able to beat "Utah levels" easy enough.  .28, not so much.

Had outpatient surgery yesterday. General anesthetic.  The required me to bring someone to drive me home and they made her sign some some docs stating she wasn't going to let me drive for 24 hours and emphasized if she let me drive she could get charged with a crime as well.
 
2017-08-16 02:03:32 PM  
A: His claiming "I can get a note from a doctor" hasn't been proven, it's just a claim from a drunk who didn't want to go to jail.

B: Even if a doctor did, with full legitimate reason, tell him "You need to drink alcohol", that doesn't give him the right to drive, much less to run over people.

C: He's a dunk asshole saying stupid shiat after running over someone.

D:  All of the above.

dude, don't use sarcasm in text format. Since your grade school teachers obviously suck at life, let me do their job for them: sarcasm requires tone. "The distinctive quality of sarcasmis present in the spoken word and manifested chiefly by vocal inflection."
