The First Name In Maryland Law

Fear the Monster!

Dear Clients & Friends,

Due to a Freedom of Information subpoena, federal officials have released reports of 13 deaths within four years that cited the involvement of high caffeine products. Without knowing the specifics, the suspects could most likely be 5-Hour Energy Shots (owned by Manoj Bhargava), Rockstar Energy, Monster Energy, Red Bull, Full-Throttle (owned by Coca-Cola), and Amp (owned by Pepsi).

This high-caffeine industry is worth $8.9 billion that has resulted in over 12,000 emergency room visits linked to their consumption. These products are not for children. Talk to the young people in your life and keep them away from excessive caffeine. For adults, if you must indulge, remember to consume low doses.

Be well. John CM
