People v. Lamb (Cal. Ct. App. - Jan. 31, 2006)

Don't combine pain medication and alcohol. Definitely don't do so and then drive at double the speed limit. Because if you do, you might well kill someone. And if you do, what happens to Timothy Lamb might happen to you: Sentenced to 17 years in prison. And that's after being acquitted of a murder count and convicted only of gross vehicular manslaughter.

Admittedly, Lamb had two prior DUI convictions. Still, don't medicate and drive. Seventeen years in prison ain't a cakewalk. Don't make it happen.
