USA: Petition Pabst: Stop Targeting Youth, Give Snoop the Boot

Dienstag 29. März 2011 von htm

Sign the Petition to Tell Pabst Execs to Stop Targeting Youth with Supersized Alcopops.
Pabst Brewing Company is attempting to revive the Colt 45 brand name with a dangerous new supersized, high-alcohol alcopop called Blast.
The Metropoulous family, which owns Pabst, is placing young women of color in the center of their marketing bullseye hoping to get youth hooked on super fruity, high-potency, 12% alcoholic beverages in massive 23.5 oz. single serving cans.
Popular rap star Snoop Dogg is helping the company with their shameless exploitative marketing strategy. Snoop’s fans deserve better. (Source: Marin Institute, 03/28/11)

USA: Supersized Alcopops are a Public Health Threat

Freitag 28. Januar 2011 von htm

Tell your state legislators to bring these dangerous products down to size.
Recent federal government action banned seven dangerous caffeinated alcoholic beverages. The worst offenders are now back, minus the stimulants, as supersized, 23.5 oz., single serving cans of sweet, 12% alcohol content alcopops.
Drinking one can = 4.7 standard drinks!
Now it’s up to the states to protect the health and safety of young people from new, high-alcoholic content, monster-size alcopops. Tell your state legislators to codify the federal ban on caffeinated alcoholic beverages, and while they’re at it, ban supersized alcopops too. Take Action! Comment: I hope those alcopops will not come to Europe!
