FDA Bans Caffeinated Alcoholic Beverages

The Food and Drug Administration is cracking down on caffeinated alcoholic beverages like it’s the Prohibition era.  These drinks have an effect on their main fan base (young people) that have been proven to be lethal.  A 21-year old Maryland woman lost her life to the substance after consuming two cans. But, that wasn’t enough for a nationwide ban, obviously.  Four Loko was already banned on college campuses across the country and is not allowed to be sold in Washington State, Utah and Michigan. So NOW! the FDA wants to step in and say let’s ban it completely. C’MON SON!

The time to ban the drink nationwide was after the first death was connected to Four Loko.  But, nooooooo!  Kids are being hospitalized all over the country and now they call a nationwide ban.  BUT! The FDA leaned forward and whispered into Phusion Projects reps ears and told them to remove the caffeine and you’ve got a deal!  At least that’s how the maker ofFour Loko makes it seem because they are removing the caffeine from the drink in an effort to keep it on the shelves because the FDA said on Wednesday that they have determined that caffeine is an unsafe substance to add to alcoholic beverages. 

But because they’ve removed the caffeine does that mean they can still keep selling Four Loko?  But this time, there’s no caffeine….woo hoooooo! In other words, keep guinea pigging your kids to this stuff because now “We promise! There’s only alcohol in it.”
