Okla. Ousts Alcoholic Energy Drinks

Mittwoch 10. November 2010 von htm

Oklahoma — „the OK State“ — has placed a moratorium on deliveries of alcoholic energy drink Four Loko and others like it, the Oklahoman reported Nov. 5.
The state’s Alcoholic Beverage Laws Enforcement Commission (ABLE) banned the delivery of the drinks into the state as of Dec. 3 — until their health risks can be studied by a scientific panel appointed by the commission. Four Loko has been dubbed “blackout in a can” by college students.
„Package stores can sell it, and consumers, 21 and over, can consume Four Loko after Dec. 3, but there just won’t be any new product allowed into the state. Once it’s gone, it’s gone,” said John Masich, ABLE’s general counsel. (Source: Join Together, 11/08/10)
