Grr. I thought that antiquated alcohol laws went bye bye when Hope Taft did - I remember when Taft was in office and they limited the percentage alcohol of beer that could be sold in the state - the reasoning was to keep it out of the hands of college kids, but you tell me - how many college kids do you know that are buying craft beers instead of cheap swill like Busch, Schlitz or PBR? There was a multiple year period where P. had to go out of state to get what he wanted or through the "black market" (so to speak) of stores that would get it for you anyway.
I dunno about you guys, but my college years weren't filled with beer, they were filled with bottles of hard liquor. I, for one, am sick and tired of all nanny laws - aren't most of us old enough to determine what we can and can't handle in the way of booze?
this should strictly be an fda regulation in my opinion
outside of the fda, and i'm going with exactly what was said above
aside from media coverage, i've never seen an ounce of advertising for this drink. so how has it violated the joe camel law? which is a shady law as well.
teenagers drink anything they can get their hands on. if they have their choice, they drink the most popular drink at that time. teenagers also rap and sing about that particular alcoholic product as well... shocking. so on this basis alone, i guess we should ban moet, miller high life, and grey goose while we're at it right? all 3 products have been featured in videos containing artists under 21. that's just from memory. i'm sure we can add ciroc, pbr, colt 45, and many many others to this list with a little research.
