And you can quote me: "It seems that the NFL and NBA aren't the only energy pumps to have problems with positive drug tests! Authorities in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia say that a lab test of RedBull Cola Energy Drink revealed that Red Bull contains 0.4 micrograms of cocaine per liter of Red Bull! "

It seems that the NFL and NBA aren’t the only energy pumps to have problems with positive drug tests! Authorities in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia say that a lab test of Red Bull Cola Energy Drink revealed that Red Bull contains 0.4 micrograms of cocaine per liter of Red Bull!

As a result, at least six German states have issued a ban on Red Bull.

Meanwhile, Red Bull have said that the Red Bull Cola is “harmless and marketable in both the U.S. and Europe,” that it uses coco leaf extracts that are used the world around “as flavouring”, and that their own tests found no cocaine (of course, they wouldn’t, would they?)

On a different, but related side-note, it’s interesting to note this truth in advertising from the Red Bull website, where you can sign up for their newsletter:

  1. I always knew that there was a reason why Red Bull was my favorite vodka mixer. Alcohol, Cocaine, and Caffeine; what more could you ask for?
