Culture: Snoop Dogg Endorsing "Blast", New Four Loko Replacement

Energy drinks with caffeine and alcohol seem to be the new thing. Four loko was banned last year because 9 college students had alcohol poisoning. It is only now that it has made its way back to the shelf - caffeine free. But Snoop is receiving flack for endorsing a product that has not even made its debut. More after the break.
The same makers of Colt 45 are introducing "Blast" that DOES include caffeine. Activists and officials are already predicting the outcome of the product saying that the shiny can disguises the dangerous product. "In the short term, a drink like this masks and shrouds the effects of alcohol. That's dangerous for your young people," says activist Minister Paul Scott.
