Man Shot Over Four Loko Dispute


Thought all the hysterics over Four Loko would dissipate slowly into the ether once the FDA clamped down on the crack-in-a-can's ingredients? Nope.

While the reformulated recipe for Four Loko stripped caffeine from the cocktail, and while the media frenzy and black-market appetite for Loko eased after the initial bans put in place by numerous states, Four Loko still has fervent fans, ones who will risk life, limb, and possible law-breaking to enjoy the sweet, way too sweet, actually cough-medicine disgusting sweet, taste.

The Plain Dealer reports today that a rogue can of Four Loko was at the center of a shooting last night that left one man in the hospital in critical condition.
