FDA May Decide to Raise Transactions Costs
By David Henderson
That’s not the headline, of course. The headline in the New York Times is, “F.D.A. Says It May Ban Alcoholic Drinks With Caffeine.” When I read it, I thought, “Oh, no. The FDA is about to ban rum and coke.” But have no fear: they’re not going to ban that drink, probably because they can’t stop the after-market. They just want to take away the convenience that comes from the pre-mix.
Isn’t it grand to have the FDA, spurred on by such busybodies as Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, looking out for us?
