Cocaine drink, clever name NOT
A new energy drink is raising eyebrows because of its controversial name. It's called "Cocaine" and it's being billed as the legal alternative to the drug.
The drink's manufacturer promises the red-colored beverage gives a bigger, better and longer energy boost than other drinks on the market.
Though the drink doesn't actually use cocaine as an ingredient, health officials are concerned the drink sends the wrong message.
Right now, the energy drink can only be found in bars in New York and Los Angeles. It will be unveiled in San Diego later this week.
Redux beverages in Las Vegas manufactures the drink.
