6:56 am
alcohol could ban it? >> why. >> under the maryland state, the comptroller could require posting of notices on the can and stores. but enerally the comptroller is only involved with licensing and taxxng issues, where it can be sold and when it can be sold. it has the power of the state regular. there's nothing that says he that has the power to ban a drink in maryland. >> everybody nows that it's dangerous. it lists to the product how much alcohol is in it. why would this be something that needs to be banned especially above any other alcoholic drink on the market. they have the purpose of getting you drunk? >> this one is deceptive.3 what is deceptive about it, it's sold as an energy drink and as a fruit drink. and people are more quickly inebriated and don't realize
6:57 am
they are being overcome. you add the caffeine and that exxass err bates the situation. the fda would have the authority to ban or adjust the alcohol content or the other ingredients in the drink, but that is sometime off. >> the fda could ban it, otherwise heaa n maryland it would be have to be list with warning signs. >> if they tried to banning it in maryland it would be a big legal fight. i don't think that the comptroller has the authority the next legislative session they couud add that authority but it would require legislative action. >> couldn't people say, these people know what they're getting into, that is why they drink is for this reason to get as drunk as they do. >> that would be the same argument with cigarettes which contain a warning. that is the question whenever
