Schumer calls for crackdown on ‘snortable chocolate’

Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is calling for regulators to crack down on “snortable chocolate,” warning that it’s being marketed like a drug. Schumer wrote a letter to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Saturday asking them to investigate products like Coco Loko, an inhalable food product with caffeine, according to the Associated Press. “This suspect product has no clear health value,” Schumer said. “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.” Coco Loko is made with cacao powder, an ingredient used in chocolate that contains caffeine. It also reportedly uses ingredients common in energy drinks. It’s marketed as a stimulant that aids in focus, feelings of euphoria and “motivation that is great for partygoers to dance the night away without a crash,” according to the AP, which notes that those claims have not been vetted by the FDA.  The Hill

I love chocolate, in any form. If they can go after 'snortable' chocolate, will my 'dipable' snuff be next?

There used to be a B-12 nasal gel that worked as good as getting a shot from the doc, I could feel it kick in an hour and 15 min.

The FDA banned it because it was taken nasally instead of orally, which made it a drug, not a supplement, and therefore needed a prescription.

Under the tongue B-12 tablets are useless, and oral supplements aren't absorbed well, either, especially if the stomach doesn't work perfectly.

Longterm B-12 deficienies lead to brain damage like dementia.

Which explains the B-12 deprived vegans' mentality.
