  1. @what fuels this?, i don’t think this has ANYTHING to do with four loko. people have been mixing alcohol with energy drinks/caffine (vodka redbull, anyone?) for years. plus, the kids who were hospitalized in washington drank four loko after having poured an excess amount of extra vodka into the can. a lot of these crimes took place during the day and during weekdays; most of the weekend ones were kids being drunk, but it’s not like that’s a surprise to anybody. people don’t do stupid things because they drink, they do stupid things because they’re stupid.

  2. I like the story that came out about a MD community that believes four loko killed their daughter…. who decided to drink and then drive drunk.

  3. Yah. Cause its not like there are any studies that demonstrate consuming energy drinks mixed with alcohol has a positive correlation with higher levels of intoxication (than compared to consuming energy drinks and alcohol separately) or a greater tendency to drive after drinking.

  4. Thanks. Do you think there is any difference in behavior between drinking 12 beers with energy drinks versus just 12 beers? i.e. Same level of drunk, but just have a noticeable amount more energy I would try myself, but I cannot swallow more than about one sip of an energy drink without getting sick.
