    which you didn't respond to, I still think you need to provide a little more to go on.  I mean if this is true and not just "good advice":

    There is no way we can tell those that may rape someone that is drunk to verify levels of inebriation.

    That is ridiculous.

    We tell them if alcohol or drugs are involved consent can not be obtained.

    Then how can a would-be rapist even always know if the person he thinks is consenting is under the influence?  Not everyone is capable of just looking at someone and knowing if they have used drugs or alcohol--and by your standards, any use at all makes consent impossible.  By your standards, unless I have been watching the person for hours, I can't possibly know if they are actually consenting.  That's kind of unrealistic and not at all like the Steubenville case, don't you think?
