State bans sale of drinks that team alcohol, caffiene..."
headlines in an article published in the Birmingham News, February 24th.
There has been lots of "hoopla" in the news about drinks that include alcohol and caffeine. Until now, it has been easy for our youth or anyone to walk into a convenience store and buy Four Loko or any other energy drink containing alcohol and caffeine. When the effects of the caffeine wear off, the effects of the alcohol remain. These drinks are sometimes called "knockout in a can." How appropriately named!
Well, the ABC Board has finally banned these drinks in Alabama after they were declared dangerous by the federal Food & Drug Administration.
