DALLAS, May 17 (UPI) --
A judge in
Texas, extended the area's ban on Cocaine
energy drinks while the manufacturer of the beverage said
the name would be changed.
judge ruled in favor of the
general's office, which argued that the drink is being
illegally sold as an unapproved drug due to its being
marketed as "speed in a can" and a "legal alternative" to
street drugs, The Dallas Morning News reported Thursday.
Redux Beverages of
Las Vegas, which
makes the energy drink, claims it is being unfairly
targeted because of its name. The company said the drink's
name will be changed to "Censored."
