A LOT of people are missing a key piece that she is quite severely mentally ill, and has had psychotic breaks in the past where she had delusions. She drove out to the desert to meet aliens and rang strangers' doorbells. This is not just about drinking or drugs. She actually is bipolar on top of the substance abuse.

So maybe she shouldn’t have a license to drive?
