Joe Cadillic has a justified rant about police going into bars with breathalyzers. The story started in Sacramento before Memorial Day weekend, but there’s also a bill in the California legislature that would expand testing.

Joe writes, in part:

How long before police nationwide will go into bars and force people to blow into breathalyzers and check for possible public inebriation or use ‘Drug Breathalyzers’ on innocent people?

California’s ‘Drug Breathalyzer’ bill is set to do just that:

A California lawmaker introduced a bill that would allow law enforcement to use new ‘Drug Breathalyzers’ on people suspected of driving under the influence of marijuana and other drugs.

Like breathalyzers used to test drivers for alcohol consumption, Assembly Bill 1356 would allow police to use oral fluid devices to check drivers for drug impairment.
