South Carolina bill bans sale of energy drinks to minors
State politicians in South Carolina filed a bill that would ban selling energy drinks to minors under 18 years old.
On Friday, Rep. Leon Howard (D-Richland) and Rep. Chip Huggins (R-Lexington) filed the bill, H. 4352. to ban the sale of energy drinks to children and teenagers in South Carolina.
This comes after parents in the state lost their 16-year-old son in 2017(AP News report), who died from a caffeine-induced cardiac arrest. The parents of the teen reportedly support the bill.
