How can they charge you when you're on prescription meds? Unless, she took too many. I know for a fact most meds say caution while operating machinery or driving. I don't see how this is her fault!

wtf    

Than prescription medications need to state on the bottle it is illegal to drive while taking them. They only ever say use caution when operating heavy machinery. If she had only the proper dose in her system it''s not her fault. The drug makers and the law need to be clear you are not allowed to take your medication and drive.

Hey, Pamela @ 2:58PM...

Let's say you go to your local drugstore, buy a couple bottles of Nyquil, go out to your car, chug-a-lug both bottles in quick succession, and then start your engine and hit the open road. You trying to tell me you don't see the problem there?! The drug you're under the influence of doesn't have to be an illegal drug in order for your operating a motor vehicle to be illegal. Alcohol isn't an illegal drug either, but it's definitely illegal to drive while you're under its influence.

Sucks for her, hope she doesn't have to do time - none of those other b's did, not ever Zlister Kardashien. Not like she was really partying.

The part that bothers me is (if it's an accurate quote) "Could have impaired...". The word 'could' leaves a considerable amount of doubt - therefore why is she being charged?
