OLCC Bans Four Loko and other Alcoholic Energy Drinks

Great news! The Oregon Liquor Control Commission voted 4-1 in favor of an immediate six month ban on seven alcoholic energy drinks. Here’s their wording:

“No licensee may sell or offer for sale Core High Gravity HG Green, Core High Gravity HG Orange, Lemon Lime Core Spiked, Moonshot, Four Loko, Joose and Max, which contain the “unsafe food additive” of caffeine and which were determined to be “adulterated” products on November 17, 2010 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration ”

This is a great outcome. It’s a temporary ban that only applies to the products identified by the FDA, but it’s a terrific beginning.

Thanks to all those who helped bring decisive action on the part of the OLCC.

    this is just hype… this is crap flavored beer with caffiene. i’m starting to think the company that created/distributed this craptastic lame ‘refreshment’ is pushing this propaganda why? because… it needs all the help it can get. i can only see kiddies (from bad parenting) getting suckered into this sludge.

    so, instead of blaming the lame product, get up off your obese backsides and teach your kids how to obtain employment instead… hum?

    there, wasn’t that nice? BARF!
