Question description

Today most jurisdictions reject voluntary intoxication as a defense to general-intent crimes, but allow the defense related to whether a defendant was capable of forming a specific intent.

Your response should be written in APA format with proper in-text references as well as a separate “reference” page. It should be a minimum of 1 full page, not including the reference page.
