This is due to be reviewed on the news tonight in a “does it really work?” special, but let’s just assume for the moment that it does work.
The site claims the product speeds up the elimination of alcohol from the bloodstream, thereby lowering the BAC (blood alcohol concentration).
They go on to say, several times on pages that are peppered with typos, that they guarantee nothing and please please please don’t ever drink & drive.
But on the other hand they are offering a magic potion to help intoxicated people beat a breathalizer even though their BAC may still be dangerously high. If you are in no position to judge your ability to drive, how will you know well enough to chug a bottle of sober-x™?
This is especially troubling:
Great. So by the time they were able to get the driver to a clinic to have blood drawn, Sober-x™ had done its job and knocked the guy’s BAC down to legal levels. Still, they guy was pulled over for a reason. Whether he was weaving in traffic or nodding off at the wheel, the driver was impared to some degree at the time of the arrest! So here we have a product that can eliminate the evidence before a conviction can be locked in. Wonderful.
And if that wasn’t bad enough. This looks like a safety net that’s being sold to people who, when they really need it, won’t be in the right frame of mind to know whether or not they need it.
Go ahead and party hard! We’ve got your panacea right here!
Bad idea. :mad:
