They shouldn't be. It's not the drink company's fault, it's the irresponsible teenagers. Honestly, I've seen people drink 2 or 3 of those Monsters per day.

well i use them mostly every morning during my first block class around 7 AM

it works and i can do my work awake and be somewhat motivated, and then i usually take a nap because im really tired around 3-4, then i don't really get tired till 11ish so i go to bed then or later, then get up at 5:45

so i guess the crash cycle isn't good, but if it wasn't for them, i would be falling asleep in my classes and not be getting the grades that i get

Wait, what? Now energy drinks are homosexual? I guess you learn something new every day.....

Don't see why they should be banned, I use them to stay awake sometimes, and would be lost without them

That's retarded, who drinks energy drinks for a buzz? Buy some coke you losers!


And energy drinks are fine.

A Brazilian study found college students didn't feel as drunk as they actually were after drinking vodka and Red Bull. Their perception of their coordination and reaction time didn't match objective tests.

When have drunk people EVER been able to do that?

Caffeine is a drug, it's a stimulant.


Those things are terrible, they don't even taste good. So much sugar and caffeine/energy. They're terrible for your body, your heart, your skin (acne) and honestly after the caffeine buzz goes away you feel like ****.

Its ridiculous, I've seen people drink like 4 of these a day.


Should they be banned?

No, but something needs to be done.

I once drank two of those big bottles of lucozade once...

Anways, for some reason i went on wikipedia and found something pretty funny on lucozade:

One litre of Lucozade Energy contains 700 kCal and contains 0.01% of ethanol, which stopped Muslims from being allowed to drink it until, in 2004, the Muslim Law Council decreed no one would be committing a religious crime if they drank it.

Oh those muslims, always scared

I drank 14 Redbulls at this party and it didn't do much to me. My buddy also drank 14 (We were having a contest to see who can drink the most, we had a virtually unlimited supply ) and he was shaking. He's really skinny though.

Personally I feel that everyone should shut up and mind their own business. People don't like that though.

I drank 2 litres of Relentless one day. That was pretty raw. Some of it was with vodka too. I didn't die. Yay for me.

Idk I'm not a ****ing researcher/problem solver for the drug and food administration.

Honestly, people don't need caffeine and those who really need it for work should stick to pills or those 5 hour energy shots. Introducing high amounts of caffeine into a tasty sweet drink just makes kids want to drink it even more and abuse it.

An age limit wouldn't hurt though, it's just a weird subject.

Anyway, I'll stick with herb and chill rather than with caffeine and act like a hyper idiot

I have never liked these energy drinks. My friends drink them way too much though so I see a reason why they COULD be banned but they won't be.

Dude, a 250ml can of red bull has 32mg / 100ml of caffine, thats 80mg per can.

80*14 is 1120mg of caffine. one cup of coffee has around 50mg of coffee.

I dont believe you...

No, lmao.
the lethal dose of 50% of the population (LD50) is depends on your weight and height. Its basically 150 - 200mg per 1KG of body weight.

IE 2 people, both weigh 1kg, both drink 200mg of caffine through red bull, theres a chance one of them will die.

etc etc

Cocaine Energy Drink, which launched in September and now sells in convenience stores and nightclubs in six states, is the latest example, following a twisted logic set by drinks named Pimpjuice and Bawls.


wait, what?


EDIT: but seriously, they ban this, one day we're gonna hear "Teenagers getting sugar rushes all over the country, eating 27 donuts at once! doctors worried"

So making an assumption that people who take caffeine/Energy drinks are idiots is right? No. Dude, it's capitalism. I don't think an age limit will happen, the drink companies would be pissy about that considering energy drinks rack up some money. Technically caffeine is a drug but hey, I've never heard of a DUI with caffeine. I think they could make the cans smaller, but as always, kids could buy them in bulk. I think Red Bull has it right. A small can, but still as much as any other Energy drink if not more, but you bashing caffeine and advocating weed is funny to me.

Not people who just drink them regularly, people who abuse them and drink like 14 cans in an hour like the idiot on the first page.

And I'm not really trying to press my opinion on you that marijuana is a miracle drug. I just said I prefer to do that. After all, message boards are about opinion right?

1120mg is also about 4 1/2 average daily intake.

All that caffeine in a short amount of time isn't healthy.

I usually buy an Amp on the more busy nights. A few hours in I usually need it to keep going into the late hours, especially if I have to close or if I'm a 'late driver.' Sometimes I get coffee instead.

I like Amp though because it doesn't taste like Flintstones chewables, or as that article said, "carbonated couch syrup."

My friend drinks about three red bulls/blue bears a day and on top of that has a litre and a half of pepsi and some explosade to top it off. It's going to catch up with him sooner or later.
