Energy Drinks to Be Banned in Louisiana?

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A state senator is proposing to ban the

sale of energy drinks to anyone under the age of 16 amid concerns

about the jolt of caffeine's effect on health.

Republican Sen. Robert Adley of Benton has proposed the bill for

the legislative session that begins in less than two weeks. It

would make the sale of the energy drinks, which are growing in

popularity including with teenagers, to anyone 15 years old or

younger an unfair trade practice.

That would include any drink - except coffee - that has at least

five milligrams of caffeine per fluid ounce.
