Four Loko is causing all kinds of problems across the country lately. The combination of caffeine, taurine, gaurana and 12% (lower in some states) alcoholic beverage has caused multiple blackouts and college campuses across the country are starting to ban it.
The latest in the string of bans comes from North Carolina governor Beverly Purdue who wants retailers of the beverage to voluntarily pull Four Loko from their shelves. The cans (seen above) are clearly marked with warning labels but the governor doesn’t think this is enough. I’m quite sure that your typical Red Bull and Vodka packs as much punch as a Four Loko, but then again you can’t buy one of those at your local 7-11 with a cheap fake ID.
