Huge difference between driving drunk and drinking a bunch of soda, soda doesn’t impair your ability to drive.
Apologetic Nanny State article is obvious.....
Bans on driving while incapacitated aren't nannystatism. These acts cause real torts, but surprisingly many drunks make it home night after night accident free. They're only discovered during police sobriety check points. This proves that at the times where there is no check point in place that number of intoxicated drivers are passing through unnoticed.
So that nanny-statism isn't really that effective in the first place and we know the source is liquor stores and bars which generate too much revenue to be directly targeted. Government loves sin taxes and we know how prohibition turned out.
The second point she makes in her straw man argument is even sillier since second hand smoke isn't the killer the left claimed it to be. She's using the epitomy of liberal logic - false facts coupled with loose correlations amounting to the phrase, "I'm an elite and I'm here to help [control your life]."
