Connecticut: Oppose HB 5141 - prohibiting energy drinks
This bill prohibits the sale of energy drinks to anyone under the age of 16.  It will require retailers to ask for a license, identity card, or passport of anyone "whose age is in question".  If you make a mistake and sell to someone under 16 then you will be fined.  This bill puts retailers in a very tough spot to decide if someone looks over/under 16.  And even if the person is 16 or older, but cannot produce identification then you'll need to refuse the sale.  This sets retailers up to fail and risk angry customers.  View bill here.
