‘No Coko Loko’: Schumer calls on FDA to crackdown on ‘snortable chocolate’
https://www.rt.com/usa/395819-snorting-chocolate-schumer-fda/

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is calling on the FDA to clampdown on a new type of “snortable chocolate,” warning that the cacao powder substance is being marketed like a drug.

The New York Democrat wrote to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Saturday, calling for a crackdown on inhalable food products like Coko Loko, according to AP.

Coko Loko, produced by Florida based company Legal Lean, is described by its manufacturers as “infused raw cacao with a special energy blend.” It doesn’t divulge details on further ingredients, but it reportedly includes common energy drink constituents.

The product is intended to focus the energy of the consumer as well as improve mood and overall well being.

“A sudden rush of serotonin will produce an elevated mood and a state of euphoria similar to the feeling of ecstasy. This is the feeling that will make the music sound better and increase overall happiness,” the website claims along with the disclaimer that its statements have not been evaluated by the FDA.

The company also claims snorting the substance will unleash a “euphoric energy” ideal for “party goers to dance the night away without a crash.”

Schumer says the product has “no clear health value” and warrants an investigation. The FDA previously told the Washington Post there’s been no decision on whether the agency would regulate the product.

“I can’t think of a single parent who thinks it is a good idea for their children to be snorting over-the-counter stimulants up their noses,” Schumer said.

The website notes that Coko Loko is not recommended for children, though it’s available online for $19.99.

Company founder Nick Anderson told Good Morning America that he didn’t consult with any medical professionals but witnessed the trend gaining popularity in Europe.

"There’s really no negative publicity so I thought we’re good to go," he said. Medical experts have said, however, that it’s unclear what the effects of the product could be.

Thank god, about time they cracked down on the herbal supplement market. Too many effective medicines. And it's a good thing they're really punishing users of different ROAs. Different is bad. I don't like it.

I hate tourine. 

I have no desire to snort even pure isolates of cocoa.  But I see recreational drug use is more acceptable and people desire more of them and safe acceptable use.

The war on drugs is doomed to grow till it bursts.

This has nothing to do with the war on drugs.  Part of the point of having an FDA is to prevent people from selling you insuffulable snake oil that might actually cause you to do irreversible damage to your airway in the pursuit of dubious medical claims.  Unfortunately there are plenty of loopholes to prevent them from taking any action against you and even where there aren't the FDA is pretty toothless (and strapped for money and personnel).

Well duh, its fun and safe, and somebody who isn't the government stands to probably make good money off of it. Why would they just ALLOW you to do it?
