Middlebury College in Vermont has banned sales of energy drinks on campus, not because they cause heart problems but because they cause "problematic behavior" like "high-risk sexual activity." So, if you run a convenience store near Middlebury, prepare to sell a lot of gross taurine-laced beverages. Sure, adults know that high-risk sexual activity has serious real-world consequences, but when you're in college it sounds like a champagne problem you'd be almost lucky to have. However ignorant the latter stance on dangerous sex is, students contend it's even more ridiculous to ban drinks like Red Bull and 5-hour Energy for allegedly making 19-year-olds even hornier than usual.
