Got a toothache? Acumen Law Corporation lawyers Kyla Lee and Paul Doroshenko investigate if you should be worried about getting pulled over by police after applying Orajel toothache medicine. In the latest “Can You Fail It?” experiment, they will be rubbing Orajel on their gums to find out if it can give, what would appear to be, an alcohol reading on a roadside approved screening device (ASD).

In “Can You Fail It?” everyday household consumables are put to the test to find out, Can You Fail It? That is, can you give a false positive reading on a breathalyzer after consuming it.

If you are concerned about how you might fail a breathalyzer, even when you have not consumed alcohol, then this video is a must-watch.

Remember, we are testing whether these products will generate a false positive reading on an ASD. Some items may or may not register on an ASD when they are present in your mouth. They do not necessarily have to be absorbed by your body to show up on a breathalyzer.
