    Age For Energy Drinks

    Energy drinks like Red Bull and others contain cafeine and other drugs that ruin our kids and teens.I believe that this drinks mustn't be sold and consumed by anyone who is under 18 as well as tobacco.

    You also forgot to ban such dangerous substances that abuse our kids like coffee, tea and chocolate, which also contain caffeine.

    Not to mention foods which contain deadly fats or insidious sugars
    He or she who supports a State organized in a military way – whether directly or indirectly – participates in sin. Each man takes part in the sin by contributing to the maintenance of the State by paying taxes.

    While I think energy drinks are relatively worthless to begin with, what suddenly makes them OK on someones 18th birthday? Why is it not okay for those under 18 to consume caffeine?

    Do you favor putting an age limit on soda too?

    Act like "normal" teens, I suspect.
    Caffeine Madness is similar to "Reefer Madness" of previous moral panics.

    I think that it should be the role of the parent, not the government, to determine what the kid can eat. Of course for things like alcohol that is a different story. I personally don't think kids should be drinking energy drinks, but making it illegal wouldn't do anything helpful.

    Agreed. Asking for government intervention in so many areas of our private lives is just begging for the heavy foot or totalitarian oppression to further impede our freedoms and movements. I neither need nor want a nanny state telling us what we can and cannot do unless what we do denies others of their human and civil rights.

    I started this same issue topic on my overseas forum to get public opinions regarding MLDA on energy drinks in my homecountry.Unlike Americans,my people are strictly conservative toward energy drinks.There are many of them who want a total prohibition of energy drinks in general.They claim that many kids and teens get violent due to them,even adults who 18+.Regarding polls for energy drink MLDA here I collected their votes

    For MLDA 18 voted 53%
    For MLDA 25 voted 28 %
    For MLDA 21 voted 20 %

    Are you simply highlighting cultural differences, or is that supposed to be an argument for banning energy drinks?

    There are too many people who desire for total prohibition of energy drinks in general.They strongly believe that drinks ruin nervous system especially in youth.

    I just read the ingredients on my teen's Monster energy drink. There's nothing dangerous in it. It does have lots of B vitamins though, and caffeine. I don't know if it does anything for him, but in spite of the name it does NOT make him violent or adversely affect him any other way. If he wants to spend three bucks of his hard earned cash on them, fine by me. Frankly, it tastes horrible. I don't know how anyone can choke it down.

    Anything in excess can be bad for you. From B-Vitamins to sugar to caffeine. These drinks aren't really any worse than coffee or soda. It's when they are used in excess that they can become a problem. Just like if I were to go to work and drink 5 large DD coffees in one night.

    "Killer Hawk" has yet to bring any hard evidence to the table that energy drinks are any more harmful than coffee (which last I knew was legal to sell to just about anyone)...so far just a whole lot of blabber. I challenge him to do so.

    And personally, I agree. Most energy drinks that I have tried are horrible. They taste absolutely terrible, and I just can't get myself to drink anything loaded with that much sugar.

    I think all food and drink should be illegal. Air should be rationed. I think there should be a govt. bureaucracy to determine how much air each person really needs.
    -Computer $1500.00
    -Monthly internet connection $35.00
    -Monthly electricity bill $245.00

    Priceless!
