Cocaine, not the drug but a new energy drink that does not actually contain cocaine was released by a company called Redux, causing stirs across the nation. Because of the comparison to cocaine the drink was pulled off the shelf with the company having to rename and reissue it. Their plan is to re-release the energy drink under the original name Cocaine.
The cocaine energy drink is said to have more caffeine than Starbucks coffee as well as the competitor drinks; Red Bull and Rockstar. Distribution of the cocaine energy drink has not yet been looked at as far as success of sales but the drink is priced at $1.99 and is sold at many different grocery stores and gas stations across the United States.

Are Energy Drinks Addictive
Not like cocaine, but yes, energy drinks are addictive. The topic and even damaging as covered in a segment by Dr. Oz. Because of the caffeine content and the other chemicals in these drinks that remain unregulated energy drinks can cause a variety of problems for users such as:
• Heart Issues
• Stomach Problems
• Jitteriness and Shakiness
The other problem with these drinks is that those drinking them will go up, having increased energy and then come down. The only way to feel good again is to drink more.
This is how one becomes addicted to energy drinks.
Caffeine is used by 90% of the population whether it’s soda, coffee or even tea. But energy drinks contain an unregulated amount of caffeine that can cause many problems for users.
