Expansive state power

This story should elicit a primal fear in those of us who enjoy our morning cup of coffee.  It seems that the statist land of California has now decided that it can charge a licensed driver of being under the influence of caffeine.  The particular story speaks about the audacious attempt by the State of California to continue to unjustly persecute a citizen for having caffeine in their bloodstream while driving an automobile. It seems unlikely, according to the article, that the state could win a conviction in this case however, while reading the piece, please consider.

The driver has had to enlist the services of an attorney at great cost to themselves and has had to live with a tarnished name for over a year due to unchecked state power.

This is yet another example of the ever growing power of the state and its inverse of citizens losing their liberty. So sad, so sad.
