Banning of caffinated alcoholic drinks.

And this week, the New York liquor authority and the state's largest beer distributors agreed to stop selling the drinks, according to the release. Oklahoma, Utah, Michigan, and Washington enacted similar bans on Four Loko after college students had fallen ill or died after drinking it.

For instance, an 18-year-old Long Island resident, Nicole Lynn Celestino, allegedly died in August of cardiac arrest after drinking four cans of Four Loko on top of a diet pill she had taken earlier in the day.

And the family of 20-year-old Jason Keiran of Florida is suing the drink maker over claims that it caused him to behave so erratically that he shot himself.


Quoted that part because that's where I have the problem. It seems they're just banning them because people are irresponsible and do not know how to drink. I don't know why anyone would want to drink four 4lokos in a row, especially after taking a pill. I just have one and I am knocked onto my ass. Just wondering how you all feel about things like this. I also enjoyed this one user's comment on the article.

But.... Even though they are more appealing to a younger crowd, they are an alcoholic beverage and are meant to be consumed by “adults”. It is sad that the two mentioned, and others have died, but, first and foremost, they were NOT of legal age to consume it in the first place. So, should we ban vodka because children may get alcohol poisoning from that? What about anti-freeze? How about Aspirin, you would not prescribe that to a child? But they have “access” to it. Just this morning some middle school students overdosed on Oxycontin. Should we ban that?

And I agree with him fully. It just seems their parents should be teaching them to drink responsibly, teenagers are always going to drink. That's how it's always been. There should be more classes in school and such teaching these kids to do things responsibly and not just binging.



Also, for the lulz, this onion article fits perfectly with this.

So I'll have to combine vodka or Jagermeister with a can of Redbull all on my own which I do anyways when I'm distance drinking. I don't think that they should be banned, but most of those alcoholic energy drinks that come in a can taste like nasty shit.

Mixing alcohol and caffeine seems really pointless.

That said Irish Coffee is still pretty damn awesome.

He was truly a sand mastah.

Also lol at "I'm suing because I shot myself after drinking your drink". Apparently since he's still complaining, he's doing it wrong.

The content in these bottles are ridiculous though. One drink is like 4 cups of coffee and 4 beers or something like that. Who honestly needs something like that in a single bottle? Who is this actually for?

If it was in lower proportion and was a sort of useful combo like (2 drinks in one! Combine your coffee and beer!) then I wouldn't care. But the concentration of caffeine and alcohol is completely unjustifiable.

But it gets me drunk ;3;

They're not just getting rid of them, though. They're banning anything that is caffeine and alcohol. Dunno what they're doing about red bull and vodka drinks. I'm actually curious to see if they do anything.

As I said I'll mix them my own dam self. It's alcoholic energy drinks specifically. A bartender mixing alcohol into an energy drink should be ok. If it is caffeine+alcohol=illegal there are going to be a lot of business men drinking bourbon and coke who are going to pitch a bitch.

All of those are good options. Except aguardiente. That just looks like cheap rum.

Aguardiente Antioqueno is sick. It's practically the favorite drink of the coast of colombia, where my family is and I visit, and it actually won a gold medal in some rum competition last year. It can be combined with pretty much anything like rum, and it has a very sweet taste to it so you can drink straight huge gulps out of the bottle. I can share a regular sized bottle with 1 or two other people and still get drunk off of my ass.


When I visit colombia, I turn into a real bad alcoholic

And? I wasn't saying I either supported or went against the idea of banning what's-its-name I just said I liked rum and coke so I fail to see your point. I've been drinking the combo since I was 14 and I'm fine and dandy.

You can smoke pot and have a bad trip (I've done it), I've even heard of people smoking some type of pot and it got them so paranoid they threw themselves out a window.

One guy died of caffeine overdose by consuming powdered caffeine. And I've consumed enough pot to hallucinate for 7 hours. I wouldn't recommend eating an ounce of weed at one sitting. Generally these are less dangerous drugs.
