One beer, two beers, three beers – what’s the harm in one
Energy drinks mixed with alcohol are becoming a popular choice
for underage drinkers. With a high alcohol content mixed with
caffeine, the drinks are considered to be more dangerous than
alcohol alone. Due to the effects, the Food and Drug Administration
has cracked down on drink manufacturers, requiring them to remove
the high caffeine content. Companies such as Phusion Projects, the
maker of the popular drink Four Loko, seen above, was one of those
warned by the FDA. Even with the changes being made, energy drinks
remain popular among teen drinkers.
The dangers of teen drinking are endless, especially when
something goes wrong. The alcohol slows down the entire body, and
the ability to make good decisions is lost. If someone passes out,
or there is an emergency, no one knows what to do, said a
representative from the Northwest Fire District.
The medicine cabinet is quickly becoming the local drug dealer,
according to law enforcement officials. Besides experimenting with
binge drinking, teenagers are also taking prescription drugs at an
increasingly high rate.
