What are the signs of "visible intoxication"?

If you can tell on sight that a person has been drinking or using other drugs, the person is visibly intoxicated. Some common signs of visible intoxication are listed below. These are not all of the possible signs. And if a person shows just one or two of these signs that does not necessarily mean the person is intoxicated. But if a person shows a combination of several signs that could be a strong indication that the person is intoxicated. Remember that intoxication can result from the use of drugs other than alcohol.
