State pays workers to get drunk

(WICHITA, Kan.) —
When Florida needed to test it's Intoxilyzer machine, it invited state workers to come get drunk on work time.  The bar bill was $330 dollars, plus the pay of the 15 employees who did the drinking. 

Florida's Department of Law Enforcement was trying prove the machines are accurate and a good weapon to get drunk drivers off the street. 

Defense attorneys across the country have challenged the machines. For a time, the county attorney in Sumner County refused to prosecute based on results.
