Cocaine Energy Drink
This news piece from CNN features an interview with the creator of the energy drink Cocaine. While there is no cocaine in the drink, he says that it was so named because Cocaine is synonymous with energy.
Thats the main reason for using the name. We thought it was the perfect name for an energy drink. Does this kind of thinking glamorize actual cocaine use?
Based on the information presented in this interview, do you have any moral or ethical issues with the name and marketing of the drink?
