Cocaine Energy Drink Banned In Texas

It claims to be a safe alternative to street drugs, and it will no longer be allowed on store shelves in Texas.

A judgement issued Monday says the energy drink known as "Cocaine" will not be allowed to be sold anywhere in the state. Along with being pulled from store shelves, the judgement also says the parent company must pay $825,000 dollars in penalties, and that all Internet marketing of the product must state that the product is not available in Texas.

The product was pulled from store shelves across the country in 2007 because they did not have FDA approval.
