So they must obtain a search warrant to collect blood without my consent.  But if I consent and it is under the limit, I may not be charged with DUI, if it is over the limit I lose my license for 90 days.  If I DO NOT consent I lose my license for one year.  How can you willingly consent if you are coerced by the state to grant your consent...or are severely punished for not consenting?  I imagine a few Appealate Court judges ponder this.
