I have recently been but on first offender probation for possession of cannabis with intent to deliver (class 4 felony), which means that if I successfully complete my 2 years of probation then my charges are dismissed. One of the conditions of my probation states that I cannot consume, use, or possess any alcoholic beverage. While briefly going over the conditions of my probation, the intake officer informed me that I will be subject to random breathalyzers as well as random drug tests. I am not smoking weed or anything so the random drug tests are not of concern to me. I know that I am not allowed to have alcohol in my house, and if my PO decides to stop by and finds alcohol in my house than I will be in violation of my probation. Also, I am not a heavy drinker by any means but I do like to go have a beer or two on occasion and maybe a glass of wine with dinner, very rarely to I ever go out and get plastered. Of course I do not plan on driving after drinking either. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with having random breathalyzers as a condition of their probation? Does this just mean that they may give me a breathalyzer if I come in to take a drug test or for an appointment, or will they also randomly stop by my house and give me a breathalyzer? I have not met my assigned PO yet and my first appointment with him is a few weeks from now, so I do not know yet if he is cool or not. Being that new years eve is coming up, I may find myself having a drink or two. So any advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Also, yes I know that the easy solution to my worries here is to just not drink at all and I am fine with that if it's going to be an issue. My questions here is how the random breathalyzers are administered, and if it is safe to have a drink or two on occasion as long as it's not like a day or so before I have an appointment?
