'Cocaine' Drink Yanked From Shelves

"She don't lie, she don't lie, she don't lie...cocaine!"
-Eric Clapton
It's the REAL THING, I tell ya...
So much for truth in adverstising. Listen to the Master tell it like it is -- Watch Eric Clapton perform live 'Cocaine."
This is justice. The FDA told a beverage company that it was illegal to name a beverage after a popular recreational drug otherwise known as 'cocaine' when......... gasp!!! It doesn't even contain one ounce of the real thing! (Throw them in the slammer...)
An energy drink called Cocaine has been from pulled from stores nationwide amid concerns about its name. The company, Redux Beverages LLC of Las Vegas, said they plan to issue a NEW name for the the drink due to an FDA warning that said the companyt was illegally marketing the drink as a street drug alternative and a dietary supplement.
NEW name? What could that be? 'Kibbles & Bits'?
