Cocaine Pulled from Shelves

The FDA sprung into action recently when a beverage called "Cocaine" hit store shelves across the nation. According to a CNN report, the FDA was disappointed in Redux Beverages, makers of Cocaine, for "illegally marketing the drink as a street drug alternative."

Said a Redux spokesman, "we intended for Cocaine energy drink to be a legal alternative the same way that celibacy is an alternative to premarital sex."

With
all the food poisoning problems we had last year, I wonder if the FDA shouldn't be spending their time doing more important things.

Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal also seems to have a lot of time on his hands these days, he actually had time to issue a statement on this matter, "Our main complaint about Cocaine is its name and marketing strategy seeking to glorify illegal drug use."

Doesn't he have a terror plot to disrupt, or something more important he could be doing?

According to the CNN article, the legal systems of Texas and Illinois are also spending precious time and tax payer money to remove the alcohol, narcotic and nicotine-free beverage from store shelves.

About Me

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
