Caffeinated Alcoholic Beverage???  Would you drink for a boost at work or the gym?…..ummmmm…..

Four lokos is an alcoholic energy drink that I am sure you heard of or tasted already.  It’s a cheap alcoholic beverage that gets people inebriated just of one can.   They are available all over  New York City.  I know some of you are thinking “wait a minute, if it gets you inebriated of  just one can, then shouldn’t it only be sold in liquor shops instead of it being available at local stores?”

Four Lokos is a concoction of energy booster and alcohol mixed together.  The city is now debating if the side effects are vital enough to not legally sell this product.  Four lokos is a product produced by Phusion Products LLC in Chicago Illinois.  Four lokos have been around since 2005 and first distributed in Ohio, after that it quickly ended up in every deli and grocery shops everywhere.

It has been debated by the attorney state general whether masking the intoxication level of this product is a high health risk or not.  Some have said the drink makes you feel drunk from having just half a can.  The reason being is this concoction is a mixture of a stimulant, (which are the high levels of caffeine) and a depressant (which is alcohol) at the same time.  Sound healthy?

Anyway if you decide to consume this beverage always try to be a safe drinker but think twice there have been certain blackouts and embarrassing behavior when not used responsibly, but you cant help but think that the same effects and warnings are also used for alcohol.  Some people even associate the effects of Four lokos with cocaine “Legalized cocaine in a can. If you consume Four Lokos you can expect to encounter the same results typically associated with snorting a small mountain of cocaine”. -Anonymous.
