Intoxicated witnesses and suspects in the U.S. are routinely questioned by law enforcement yet little is known about the effects of intoxication in legal contexts. The sparse research on the effect of intoxication on suggestibility is mixed. The current study will attempt to help clarify these mixed findings. Intoxicated, placebo, and control participants will complete the Gudjonsson Suggestibility Scale after consuming drinks consistent with their randomly assigned condition. Suggestibility is expected to be highest in intoxicated participants, lowest for control participants, and placebo participants are expected to fall in the middle. Implications for the criminal justice system will be discussed.
