Transcript THE FOUR LOKO CRAZE By Darlene Campos Taking a "Red Bull" or "Monster" is not uncommon for college students to help them get over that all-nighter, when the midday coffee is no longer working. But a new energy drink has taken over the market and caused much controversy. With a high caffeine and alcohol concentration, Four Loko has been quickly raised to the top of the Food and Drug Administration's radar. After several students across the country were hospitalized and some even died, the FDA released a safety warning for the drink and made Four Loko makers drop the amount of caffeine. Yet, there is still 6-12 percent alcohol in a 23.5-ounce can of Four Loko. Nine students at Central Washington University had to be hospitalized after drinking Four Loko. One of these students had a reported blood alcohol level of .30; a blood alcohol level of .40 can be lethal for many. After this, the state of Washington banned sales of the drink. "I've heard of (Four Loko) in the news lately. What I mostly hear about it isn't good, and the fact that most publicity it gets is negative, says much about it," communication sophomore Patrick Levy said. "I've never had one, and I don't plan to. The alcoholic content inside a Four Loko is several times more than the content of a typical beer. I don't think it is safe." The FDA has taken action to warn the public about the possible dangers of drinking alcohol combined with stimulants. It issued warning letters to several companies, including the makers of Four Loko, saying they had to remove the caffeine from the drinks, or their products would be banned. The makers of Moonshot, Joose and Max, Core High Gravity HG, Core High Gravity HG orange and Lemon Lime Core spiked were among those issued the letter. "I tried it once. A friend of mine bought a can after hearing the controversy behind it," post-baccalaureate student Katy Umaha said. "I had a sip, but that was enough to convince me it was disgusting. It does taste like an energy drink with alcohol in it but the aftertaste was horrible. "I could tell that having a lot of it could really mess you up. I know a group of people that wanted to throw a Four Loko party and decided to stock up on the drinks from different convenient stores before they sold out. I can't imagine anyone drinking it other than for the sole purpose of getting smashed quick." The drink has been banned in Washington, Utah, Michigan and Chicago. Other states, including New York, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Kansas and Rhode Island, are taking steps to prevent sales of the drink. News [79]
