A 'cocaine' energy drink can which states on the side that there contains no actual cocaine in the drink.  Despite a lawmaker's effort, 'cocaine' will not be banned in the state of Oklahoma.  

'Cocaine' Energy Drink Not Banned in Oklahoma

A popular energy drink will not be banned in Oklahoma thanks to a failed amendment by an Oklahoma lawmaker.

Rep. Mike Shelton, D-Oklahoma City, wanted to "ban any food or beverage with the name of a controlled or dangerous substance," which would have included the popular energy drink 'cocaine'.

He was criticized on the House floor for trying to attach this amendment to Rep. Randy Terrill's (R-Moore) bill.

"I don't know why he would want to bring this to the attention of a bunch of 13-year-old goofballs," Rep. Rex Duncan, R-Sand Springs, said on the floor.

After criticism, the amendment was then scratched from the bill.
