People in San Francisco are mad at Monster because they say that Monster Engergy is bad for young kids and adults. Which if you drink a lot of it you probably will feel the same.
The popular drink, whose main market consists of sleepy teens and Axe Body Spray wearers, also claims that its users “can never get too much of a good thing!’ — see cocaine comment above — which is also a point of contention with Mr. Herrera.
According to the New York Times, “Mr. Herrera cited a section of a California state law that makes it illegal for a company to make false or misleading advertising claims that purport to be based on fact or clinical data.”
NYT goes on to report that “[t]he F.D.A. has suggested that 400 milligrams of caffeine a day from all sources is safe for adults, although many medical experts believe that adults can safely consume more.” (Damn right we can.) Data on teens and caffeine, however, is far less.
