BERLIN, May 26 (UPI) -- A German scientific finding that Red Bull Cola contains trace amounts of cocaine has prompted a controversy over the drink, analysts say.

The Health Institute in the German state of North Rhine Westphalia is expected this week to publish the results of a study that found 0.13 micrograms of cocaine per can of Red Bull Cola, a separate product from the popular Red Bull energy drink, triggered a ban on the cola's sale in six German states, Time Magazine reported Monday.

How does 0.13 micrograms affect someone? Don't those people usually inhale grams at a time? One gram is nearly 9,000,000 more than 0.13g.

I don't think many, if any, are inhaling grams at a time. The ones who might try we hear about in the obits.

When I was in college in the 80s, one of my sorority sisters was a coke fiend. She didn't buy it, she got SAEs and Sigma Chis to give it to her, but they always gave her quarter grams, which lasted her a day or so.

No, this wasn't the roommate I mentioned yesterday.

A BJ queen and a cokehead? What in God's name was your sorority? φύλο, φάρμακα, μουσική? :eek:

I really hope this is sarcasm. Either that or none of you have ever been to college.

I didn't. I have weak vessels in my nose, from getting wacked in the face with a Tonka truck by another kid when I was about 2. I knew that putting something like coke up my nose would definitely result in a nosebleed, at the very least, and possibly a stroke. I didn't date guys from the same frats as she did, anyways. Coke in Kalamazoo was only available in circles with money, at the time. It was the pre-crack early 80s. Poor people bought meth and chopped it up like cocaine and snorted it. The guys I shared a lane with in bowling class did that.


There's a reason that they don't make Tonka trucks out of metal anymore.
