Should Drunken Breastfeeding Be Considered a Crime?

Is nursing your baby while under the influence breaking the law? Police in North Dakota thought so. When authorities responded to a domestic disturbance call they arrested an inebriated mother who was nursing her 6-week-old infant. Though a blood alcohol test was never run on 26-year-old Stacey Anvarinia, she plead guilty to child neglect and now faces up to five years in prison. While those involved insist that drunken breastfeeding is not the only reason the woman was taken into custody, it begs the question if it's even appropriate. What's your opinion of intoxicated nursing? Is any trace of alcohol too much or is there a limit?
