    That drink would go great with my popping candy marketed as 'Crack Rocks'.

    Kids LOVE drugs.

    Does courting irresponsible product pitches just come naturally for some advertising firms or is it a special class they can elect to take?

    I'd give this drink the exact amount of attention it deserves. None. Young adults in school receive an amazing amount of anti-drugs information. The education has been offered. If then they're stupid enough to court the dangers of drug abuse by the thinnest thread of correlation between a drink with a stupid name and a class A narcotic then I say let Darwinism take its course.

    They should be done under the trade description act, because it's not cocaine...

    The Texas AG had this banned in Texas for all the same dumbass reasons. Waste of time and taxpayer money if you ask me. They should offer the same product under the name 'Blow' in such places. It'd be hard to make the same accusations stick to such a generic word. In Texas, they should try it as 'Llello' and see if a bunch of crusty, old, white politicians notice.

    I think it's funny that the overtly-PC whinywhiners out there haven't flipped out about Coca-Cola yet. I'm waiting for that article to appear about idiots saying "Coca-Cola should change its name because, at one point almost a century ago, Coca-Cola had cocaine in it!"

    Sounds ridiculous, but I wouldn't put it past a soccer mom advocacy group with too much time on her hands.

    Anyway if the drink contains the chemical preparation, then I'm against of it, but natural extracts of coca is something different IMO, the same thing with marijuana, is a natural plant and I'm don't have trouble with it at all.

    Holy shit, did everyone have a funectomy or something? The name of the drink is funny. This is also from the people who make Brawndo, so that implies that the people there have a sense of humor.
