After our discussion on Four Loko, we decided to see what other people think.

It really bothered me that no one seems to care that the government can so easily and quickly ban a substance that hasn’t really been proved to be unsafe or dangerous. In my opinion, people should be responsible for their own decisions – like what they consume and how much they consume. Drinking too much of any alcohol can get you sick. With FourLoko and similar drinks, you just need to be a little smarter about it.

UPDATE: Phusion Products (manufacturers of Four Loko) have announced that they are re-formulating the drink and removing caffeine, taurine, and guarana.

If you really still need that extra kick of caffeine, here’s one suggestion of how to concoct Four Loko homebrew.
