Do you know that type person, either a friend or a family member, that completely throws you under the bus when the thing hits the fan?

This guy reminds me so much of that person. Meet Aaron Galbraith, a man who was convicted for drunk driving after a breathalyzer machine showed he was twice over the limit drunk.

Aaron claims that his vaping caused him to fail the breathalyzer device. Traces of e-juice in his mouth made him appear drunk according to the breathalyzer. They even brought a doctor or some medical scientist to court to prove that it was possible that something like this could happen.

Even if the scientific evidence was pointing to the possibility of Mr. Galbraith failing a drunk driving test due to vaping, it still seemed a little too extreme for him to show 2 times over the alcohol limit.

The judge also took into the consideration the police account which stated that Aaron had difficulty standing and his speech was slurred.

Aaron was sentenced to a 3 year restriction from driving and fined £300.

The funny part is even if Aaron blames his vaping on his drunk driving conviction, he still will not give up on vaping. “It is either that or go back on the cigarettes and I don’t want to go back to them,” he said.

People involved in the case noted that this was the first time they heard vaping was used in a defense argument in court.

Former smoker turned vaper since 2013. I blog about questions that I and others might have about vaping. All I can say is it's a better alternative to cigarettes, nicotine gum, patches or medication, no matter what the Big Tobacco backed media says!
