''under the influence of alcohol''
Just to be clear on my answer,
yes I have flown after I had drank,
but I wasnt ''Under The Influence''
Of course, I am using the definition of Under Influence to be
When you fall unconscious due to drinking alcohol, that is Under The Influence.
Ya'll use a different standard for what is and isnt Under the Influence
Well, I know we can alternatively use the classic standard: 72hrs Bottle To Throttle,
or perhaps the legal standard: 0.10 BAC
(or perhaps the other legal standard: 0.08 BAC)
(or perhaps the other legal standard: 0.05 BAC)
(or perhaps the other legal standard: 0.04 BAC)
....... but that depends on just where do you live and when, cause the LegalStandard is very dynamic.
OR we could use the Hour-A-Shot standard,
and some folks even consider just 8hrs to be plenty of time after drinking 7 beers chasing 4 SoCo On Crushed.
But I'm sure we all agree that there really is only one true definition of Under the influence of alcohol:
Any detectable amount in the blood does ''influence'', the greater the BAC above ZERO the greater the influence.
Zero Alcohol zero influence, Some alcohol some influence, and it takes a LOOOOOOooong time to get down to Zero.
So I guess the question to the OP is,
which of the many definitions of Under The Influence are we talking about?
I guess we should be using the definition that AMA uses..... uh, oh wait, where exactly is that published again??
