The alcoholic beverage, Four Loco, is becoming more difficult to obtain.
The Texas Alcohol and Beverage Commission has asked local stores to discontinue the product, due to high alcohol and caffeine content. TABC says one can of four loco is equivalent to roughly six to eight beers, and six cups of coffee.
TABC officials say "when you have alcohol which is a depressant, and then caffeine which is a stimulant, pulling on your body in two directions, does cause some problems with your body."
Currently there are no laws that ban this product, but most convenient stores are complying with TABC and no longer sell it.
In the future, TABC will suggest to the Commission of Administrative Rule, to allow their agency to restrict or remove products that are harmful to public health and safety.
TABC asks that anyone who decides to continue drinking Four Loco, to be responsible and realize the amount of alcohol and caffeine they are consuming in just one serving.
