Knowing that couldn't last, I just decided to bide my time. Sure enough, Robert Adley came through! (Note: don't get indignant if you are a 'friend of Adley', I've been nice to him the last two times I've blogged about him.)
He is proposing a bill to ban sales of energy drinks to kids under 16 because of the bad effects of caffeine. Now I don't think the things are good, don't misunderstand.
Adley is supposed to be a conservative, so what is this nanny government thing about? Doesn't he believe that kids' parents can guide them?
Besides, it would seem much more logical to ban them for folks over 50, they are the ones that are having the heart problems and strokes that caffeine can aggravate.
The legislative session will begin in 2 weeks.
