This is the problem right here. I got to the bank and deposit some money. After I leave a guy comes in and robs it.

Police collect tons of DNA and find that since they found some of mine they can charge me with a crime because they managed to get a huge database of it by testing everyone in town.

The difference between a human and robot bartender is that when you've had a few too many the robot bartender can not be bargained with, reasoned with, it doesn't feel pity or remorse or fear and it absolutely will not stop until you've been served a diet soda.

Being served diet soda has never been so frightening before.

Robots: conquering the human race... with diet soda.

It has nothing to do with being an alcoholic. The law is about someone who visibly appears drunk. And the bar can be held liable.

Which I think is bullshit, it isn't the bar's fault, especially considering how many people can look perfectly normal but be too drunk to drive. But that is probably just a part of PA desperately clinging to Prohibition.
