Hopefully, the buzz over the new energy drink, Cocaine, will be only a temporary high, and its pushers and dealers won't end up in Glendale and the foothills. Glendale Police and Glendale Unified School District officials were right this week to express concerns over the marketing of the high-caffeine energy drink, saying that it sends the wrong message to children. The drink is a shameless attempt to make a buck off of youngsters, whose appetites can be fueled by curiosity about anything illicit, or "bad."

GLENDALE — Police are concerned about the marketing of a new energy drink that boasts the name of an illegal drug and may be sending the wrong message to children. Cocaine — a high-caffeine drink created by Redux Beverages LLC, of Las Vegas — refers to itself as "the legal alternative" and claims to be an extremely high-potency beverage, according to the drink's website www.drinkcocaine.com . "We're surprised that somebody would try to sell something with this name," Glendale Police Officer John Balian said.
