Who the hell drinks 1.5 litters of energy drinks anyway?
I drink this stuff like its water, 3-9 cans a day. ^^ still alive and well and I have a heart condition as well ta boot! HA, IM also an insomniac , so
if IM going to be up all day/night id rather be WIDE awake haha stuff will give you diabetes, rotten teeth, heart problems, probably stomachs
problems, and may even cause cancer, and guess what, 90% of life does anyways so just freaking live it!

Is there a law with caffeine content, sure is
In the United States there is a limit of 65mg of caffeine per 12 liquid ounce in beverages. This may only be for carbonated beverages. (What we call
coke here in the south and my northern friends like to call pop.) There is also a limit of 200mg in pills such as Vivrin.

Now remember this in mgs, go in kitchen and get 160mg of baking powder out, its really not as much as you think, personally id like even more in them
, but hey that's just me. Caffeine is a strong drug no doubt, take a spoonful of pure caffeine and almost guaranteed to have instant heart attack, my
high school science teacher used to give us a hit( aka lick very tip of finger dip in container, lick off we were not shooting caffeine/sniffing
hehe) of pure caffeine lab quality, before big tests if we wanted (private school heh)
first let me say IM sorry for her families loss,and its always tragic to lose someone so young but,
good luck silly parents, I hope they lose , lose bad, and then lose the house for trying this crap, you knew daughter had a problem, she's old enough
to know she has a problem and drank something with basically speed in it and had warning labels on it and then died, go f ing figure. They have no
case what so ever, but hey lets tie up the court systems with more BS claims. And then wonder why you have to jump through 40 million hoops to use a
product or go to a venue to see a show, its idiots like these people.
p.s None of these are any where near "revive with vivrine 200mg per pill" I and friends would eat that crap like candy in grade school.i don't think I
would have graduated from art/business school without the stuff, and espresso, and cappuccino, chocolate covered espresso beans etc etc
