Gimmie some good ol' Ritalin or Adderall - then some Valium + Ambien for bedtime, and antidepressants 24/7.

I and I thought that stuff was okay, we used to stock that where I worked. Of course, I was always high, so Im not sure a pinch of valerian did anything "mood altering" to me, tasted alright though. When cannabis is legal nationwide, there are going to be a TON of these things.

You can buy Valerian Root (the active ingredient in this stuff) capsules at any pharmacy, I use it if I am having insomnia ( which is usually once-twice a week). Diazepam (Valium) is more or less synthetic Valerian Root in it's chemical structure. You can also buy Valerian Root herbal tea.

Fox is an extremely conservative news network. Extreme conservatives despise Mexicans. It's a contradiction.

It's like the Nazi party opened a "Jew Playground" in hopes of attracting enemy voters, even though they would evict them ALL if it came to it.

It isn't uncommon for people to point out other people's contradictions.

I've never had those but I drank valerian tea once and it made me puke. I don't understand the appeal of all these medicinal drinks on the market these days.

Addendum to that one. I know its a stretch on the Nazi nit, but even a pedantic conservative should see what I mean there.

I tried a can of Purple Stuff when I saw it as a new product as a gas station. It didn't do anything for me but I didn't buy it with the intention of it actually relaxing me, the curiosity got me.

In the '80's, the FDA abdicated it's responsibility for regulating anything that was not an approved medication (read "nutritional supplements") Wonder why all the scammers (other then regulated pharmaceutical companies) are3 the biggest source of television advertising revenue?

Ritalin and other drugs are regulated by the FDA, require a prescription, are given by doctors who are at least aware of their patients' physical problems, and come with black-box labels warning of the risks attendant on giving them to children under 18. That doesn't eliminate the dangers, or obviate the effects, but at least someone is aware of them.

Herbal supplements are unregulated except voluntarily by their manufacturers, are often "prescribed" by naturopaths or holistic healers who don't really know all the side effects of what they're giving, but who at least have their patients' best interests at heart, appreciate that they're giving out herbs and minerals with medical effects, and usually try to inform their patients of possible ill effects.

Energy drinks are unregulated by anyone, anywhere, any time. The public perception is that they are little more than soda/water drinks with an extra shot of caffeine or some kind of funny-sounding alternative--guarine? taurine? kola nut? They're usually marketed by the same soft drink companies that make regular soda, so why wouldn't someone think that Monster is just as safe as Coke or Gatorade? And since the marketing is directed at kids, who think danger is something that happens to someone else and usually in the movies, it's not like they're going to pay attention to tiny little type on the bottom of the can that says "should not be consumed by those under 18."

Maybe eventually someone will pay attention after a few more kids die; but probably not. Coca-Cola is a pretty powerful company.

They didn't abdicate in the 80's; lobbyists wrote an exemption into federal law in 1994 to keep them out of an area they'd been sniffing around and prosecuting in for a while.

katerbug72: I've never had those but I drank valerian tea once and it made me puke. I don't understand the appeal of all these medicinal drinks on the market these days.


Most teas make you puke on an empty stomach, and many will make you nauseous even on a full one if you're not used to them. Teas can be very strong, much stronger than coffee or energy drinks, although the tannins that make them so don't really have any medicinal properties beyond tasting more bitter. Once steeped for ~3-5 minutes, you've extracted as much caffeine and other oils as you ever will, the rest is just going to be tannins. You can definitely come to appreciate the taste, though.

/Loves tannins and steeps for 20-30 minutes.

Also, why is the entire article about energy drinks when the drink in question was a sleep-inducing drink? Did the reporter figure there was no possible other angle on the story than to shoehorn energy drinks in, because they both come in cans?

Hey, reporter, how about you tell us how schools and governors are getting concerned about the sugar in Pepsi sold on campus, too?

See back in the 1997 I went to an air show and there was a Red Bull promo booth. A free can of red bull but you had to show your ID, they refused to give it to anyone under 16.

Are we talking Fillmore or Simi Valley here? The latter I visit regularly, the former only once every other year or so, but for a good deal it might be worth it....
