It is illegal for a person to drive a car while they are under the effect of drugs (even prescription drugs) and/or alcohol to the point that they cannot think clearly, and/or drive safely.
A person with a blood alcohol content of .08 or above is guilty of driving under the influence (DUI). A person with a blood alcohol content of between .04% and .05% or above is guilty of driving while intoxicated (DWI).
If the driver is 21 years old, or younger, that person is guilty of driving under the influence if their blood alcohol level is .02%
