Florida family suing makers of Four Loco saying the drink led to their son’s death. Some are comparing the cheap and easily accessible drink to crack cocaine.
For years, people have looked to coffee to give them a jolt to get through the day – and alcohol to loosen up. but some say mixing a stimulant and a depressant may be a buzz kill.
The can does say it contains alcohol- but what it doesn’t tell you is that it’s an equivalent of 6 light beers and two cups of coffee- some say a recipe for disaster and now- the FDA does too.
“That’s why they call this liquid cocaine- crack in a can or black out in a can.”
A couple of years ago, the flavored malt beverage Four Loko burst onto store shelves giving consumers a jolt while getting drunk.
