    In my case, I drank energy drinks long time ago (in parties, with alcohol) and in fact I think that they are not necessary in any case.

    They have become so popular thanks to TV, Radio, etc. and their companies spend a lot of money in ads , trying to catch to everybody, not only adults, but young people, and here’s the problem.

    Caffeine is addictive but we can’t compare its effects with the rest of drugs, so I think that for this reason caffeine is legal and not the rest.

    If you consume it with moderation or measure, I think that isn’t harmful, but in every case, I would forbid it to young people (like alcohol, for example).
