“[Four Loko] is truly vile to drink,” admits Baylen Linnekin, executive director of Keep Food Legal, “but I’m not the arbiter of taste and neither should the government.”
Be it unpasteurized, caffeinated, or sodium-enriched, government inevitably finds excuse to regulate and even ban food and drink that they say risk public health or safety.
