Ok, California might be considered mildly over-regulated. Just mildly, tho, mind you. But, this? This is f#$king ridiculous. Let the people use legal recreational drugs as they see fit. It’s getting to the point where we can’t even make our own decisions anymore. Are we still calling this freedom? Does this start a horrible snowball effect? Will you not be able to sell Coffee and Beer in California in the same store soon because of it’s potentially adverse combined effects on consumers. F#$k me. This is getting out of hand.
Granted, I don’t want to be exactly like the French. But, you’ve gotta admit that they do have something figured out over there. I happen to love the “go for it…and if it doesn’t work out…you’re f#$ked…and that’s just fine with us” attitude they’ve got. It’s sublime in it’s own ethereal way.
What Jerry Brown and Alex Padilla think will happen to you if you drink caffeinated beer in California. photo: ransackmedia.com
So, here are the facts:
- Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill that makes caffeinated beer illegal to sell in California.
- California is the 7th state to do this.
- Critics of caffeinated beer say it’s marketed to young people and that they lose control on this particular juice
- Some college students even were hospitalized after too much of it (yeah, college students have never been hospitalized for doing too much of any other drug, tho, thankfully)
The bill’s author, Democratic state Sen. Alex Padilla of Los Angeles, says the beverages are a threat to public health because they can mask the effects of alcohol. – sfgate.com
