Chicago Ald. Ed Burke has proposed a citywide ban of energy drinks, citing potential health risks with the highly caffeinated beverages.
More and more these days, you see teenagers hanging out at your neighborhood coffee shop, craving a caffeine kick.
The infamous Chicago-made beverage Four Loko is being recycled, and could actually wind up in your gas tank.
The Illinois Senate has voted to ban caffeinated alcoholic drinks, a measure spurred by public attention to Four Loko, a so-called “alcohol energy drink” popular with college students.
Five other states have banned them. Now, alcohol energy drinks could be off the market in here too.
The controversial maker of alcohol-caffeinated drink faces additional bans in other states, too.
The caffeinated alcoholic beverage Four Loko has been banned in four states and now Chicago-based Phusion Projects has agreed to stop shipments to New York state.
