i'm with you, i don't do energy drinks
I'm out of that age range, but even when in it I did not. I don't do sugary drinks at all. The occasional 5-Hour Energy shot if I have to make a long drive (6-8 hours, I do a few times a year).
She even said he "habitually" drank it. As in his bad habit, not the company. He didn't follow the warning on the can. It's not even healthy to drink two cans of regular soda a day for THREE YEARS, much less something like this. May as well sue the rope manufacturers if someone uses their product to hang themselves. Honestly. People have to take some responsibility. I know she's grieving but she has nobody to blame but him. He was young and like all of us at that age, he thought he was invincible and did something stupid and unfortunately it killed him. It's sad, but she has no right to sue.
Not at all. I'm 21 and I've only had.. maybe two in my life time? And that was back in '07..and they were Sobe..like, back when they were just starting to get popular, if I remember right. And I had them weeks apart from each other.
People are seriously lacking common sense. It was her kid's choice to drink two a day. It's not Monster's responsibility to monitor each and every single consumer and how much they drink.
Since there's a warning on the can, it's Morris' fault for not heeding that warning. The mother has no right to sue. Plus, I bet she's the one that paid for all those drinks. She's just as guilty.
I'm 27 and went through engineering in school. I've never had an energy drink.
I'm with you also. After drinking one of those things, I feel like I want to run a marathon, and I hate that feeling.
I think the last time I had an energy drink was last winter when I competed in a Red Bull event and the girls basically forced them down your throat for publicity. Needless to say, there's much better junk I could blow money on.
Yay! Sane people like me!
I do wonder what is going to happen in the future to people who consume these energy drinks on a daily basis. Surely that much caffeine, that concentrated, that often can't be good for you?
