It's not just about people who don't understand the risks.
It's also about people who will look at the drinks and say, "Hey if they are selling this stuff in stores it must be safe to drink! Look it's cheap to! Let's buy six of them and get wasted!". Then their heart stops after the third one.
I can't believe you people are arguing about this. Did you really love those drinks that much?

Unless they plan on enforcing this all the way, with home searches, arrests, bar raids, armed FDA troops, etc... I see absolutely no point at all.
But then the "point" is just to make it appear as though they are doing something beneficial for the idiots out there.
God bless the idiots and the mighty power they wield over the non-idiots. All hail our idiot overlords.
Dude I'm getting a job at the FDA's criminal enforcement division.
This way I can run around and stomp on people's faces who produce alcohol/caffeine cocktails at parties.
It will be glorious.
All will fear me.

Earlier this week, the company agreed to voluntarily cease sales in New York. And on Tuesday, Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said in a statement that the FDA plans to rule caffeine an unsafe substance to add to alcoholic beverages, "effectively making products such as Four Loko, Joose, and others like them, prohibited for sale in the United States."
There's water in the drinks too. Why don't you neocons tell everyone the FDA is banning water now!!! Everyone the neocons need you to know that this FDA ban will of course lead to a ban on water because the NWO doesn't want you to consume liquids. Booga booga booga

I think this might be taken slightly out of context. The FDA is not banning caffeine front alcohol, they are banning premixed beverages that contain alcohol and caffeine. So Jagerbombs are still in, but Four Lokos are out. The reason is because a beverage like Four Loko is just too dangerous for kids.
So, these types of drinks are being banned because they are dangerous, especially to college kids who are not particularly responsible with their drinking. They'll guzzle Four Loko like it's a bottle of Miller Light all night long and wake up in a hospital...if they wake up at all. On top of that, the artwork on Four Loko cans target a younger crowd and the price is just right for the underage crowd.
Bottom line, the malt beverage is dangerous in the wrong hands...and it found the wrong hands. So now, it'll be banned. No fear though, your vodka redbulls, Bailey and coffees, and Bacardi and cokes are still perfectly fine.
