There Is No Beating the Breathalyzer This St. Patrick's Day (Video)

Caption: If you're having some drinks this St. Patrick's Day weekend, remember to have a designated driver, otherwise you may end up on the business end of a breathalyzer on the side of the road. If you think you can beat it, think again; chemistry will land you in cuffs. In the American Chemical Society's (ACS') latest Reactions video, we examine how your breath can get you busted when you've had too much to drink. The video is available here: http://youtu.be/rvVzlg26bCM.
