What you should know about ignition interlock devices in Illinois

If your driver's license has been suspended because of a DUI, you may be able to continue driving as long as you have a Breath Alcohol Ignition Interlock Device (BAIID) in your vehicle. A BAIID works similarly to a Breathalyzer. You need to breathe into it before you can start your vehicle. If it detects at least .025 percent blood alcohol content (BAC), the ignition won't work. You will also be prompted at random times while driving to breathe into it again.

Why I don't trust Illinois breath test instruments, and why you shouldn't either. Part 1.

The Illinois State Police owns and services breath test instruments used by law enforcement for measuring breath alcohol content of motorists suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol. The instruments are supposed to test deep alveolar breath - breath coming from the alveolar regions of the lungs. The alveolar are very thin tissue where oxygen mixes with blood. This deep lung air is supposed to have a good relationship to blood, and by testing it, the instrument is intended to provide an accurate measurement of blood alcohol content. If you have a basic understanding of human physiology, you may be suspect already, but just wait.

Medical marijuana use is increasing significantly in Illinois

The number of people in Illinois who use medical marijuana has risen by a whopping 83 percent just this year. According to numbers reported this month by the state, over 46,000 people are in the state's medical marijuana program. It's roughly a $12,000 per month business, and growers in the state are increasing their crop production. The number of Illinois physicians who are allowed to certify patients for medical marijuana use increased from 2,100 to 3,000 in the past year.
