Last day for alcoholic energy drink sales
Today is the last day that stores in Michigan can sell alcoholic energy drinks. Last month, the Michigan Liquor Control Commission announced it would ban sales of the controversial drinks because of health risks.
The Associated Press reports:
The Food and Drug Administration is requiring major brands of caffeinated alcoholic drinks to be taken off store shelves nationally by mid-December because of similar concerns. The agency says the combination of caffeine and alcohol in the drinks can lead to a "wide-awake drunk" and alcohol poisoning, car accidents and assaults.
At least four states have banned the drinks. You can find a list of the banned-drinks here.
